It’s time for our Object of the Week! We’ve chosen this beautiful watercolour, painted by Dr Edward Wilson during the British National Antarctic Expedition 1901. As well as being Assistant Surgeon and Zoologist, Wilson was a talented and gifted artist. When working outside in freezing temperatures he could not use watercolour or paint because his materials would freeze. Instead, he used pencil, making detailed sketches on the spot which were later redrawn in much fuller detail, before being coloured in.

Captain Scott's wooden snow goggles are our Object of the Week! Goggles like these were essential when trekking through the hostile Antarctic terrain as explorers were often exposed to conditions such as ‘snow blindness’. This was caused by the intense glare of sunlight reflecting off the snow, burning either the corneas or any exposed skin; leaving the men with blistered faces and often unable to see. Small cut out crosses over each eye would aid visibility.

The ships used during the Heroic Age of Polar Exploration truly were beautiful vessels. These images show two amazing examples - the Discovery (in 1901) and Shackleton's Endurance (in 1914). It is such a significance to still have the Discovery when so many others have sadly been lost - of that era of Antarctic exploration only the Discovery and the Fram (The Fram Museum) remain!

Our Object of the Week is this newspaper clipping featuring Beeps The 'Problem' Cat. Taken from an unknown newspaper, the article tells the sorry tale of Beeps, a cat who had not been on dry land since he was a kitten. Beeps would imminently have to adjust to a new life on shore as RRS Discovery was due to be handed over to the Royal Naval Reserve and moored alongside the Thames embankment.

#OnThisDay 1915. The RMS Lusitania was attacked by a German U-boat and sank in just 18 minutes. 1198 passengers and crew were killed in the attack and aftermath.
There was also a, largely unknown, connection with #RRSDiscovery. Commander Joseph Stackhouse was returning to the UK on board the Lusitania, having secured funds in the US for a proposed British Antarctic and Oceanographic Expedition. A £1000 deposit had already been paid to the Hudson's Bay Company to secure the Discovery for the expedition. Sadly Stackhouse lost his life in the sinking. In his final moments he was said to have been seen giving his life belt to a little girl and was last seen standing calmly at the stern as the ship made her final plunge.
The expedition hopes ended with his death and Discovery continued as part of the Hudson's Bay Company, successfully avoiding the type of U-boat attack that had taken so many lives on the Lusitania and many others.

Can you spare us a like?

We have a rather unusual request today for all our wonderful Facebook supporters, especially those in and around Dundee.

Our boiler plant at Discovery Point is now 26 years old and needs replacing. We have submitted an application for funding towards the cost of the replacement system, but the funder would like to see some evidence of community support for this work.

While this might not initially seem like the sort of project that would have much public impact, if our current unreliable boiler decides to stop working altogether it would mean a rather cold museum experience for our visitors, especially during the winter months! We could try and make excuses about offering an authentic Antarctic experience, but we’d rather spare our visitors this…

The replacement boiler system is also the first step towards improving our environmental footprint – Dundee Heritage Trust already holds a Silver Green Tourism Award and we have exciting plans to make Discovery Point a much more eco-friendly building.

We’d be delighted therefore if as many of you as possible could show your support by simply liking this post! We would also love to see any additional words of support you may have and will add these to our funding application which, if successful, will help us maintain the 5-star visitor experience at Discovery Point.

Many thanks – and we look forward to welcoming you back to Discovery Point and Verdant Works when the museums re-open after the current lockdown!

This week's Object of the Week is a portrait of Captain Robert Falcon Scott created by Scottish artist Calum Colvin who combines photography, painting and installation. Calum created this piece by photographing an interior scene of a base camp depot containing all the equipment needed for a polar sledging journey. He then painted a portrait of Scott onto of this image.

Calum Colvin is a Scottish artist whose work combines photography, painting and installation. He has widely exhibited his work both national and international for over thirty years. Calum is also Head of Contemporary Art Practice at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, Dundee.

During the lockdown it can be interesting to look at the diary and see what would have been happening at Discovery Point if we were still open. Today is a particularly interesting one as a special guest was due to join us: Former NASA Astronaut and current Director of the United States Geological Survey Jim Reilly!
In 2018 he kindly donated one of his NASA flight suits to our new Inspiration Gallery which features objects of exploration in the years after the Discovery Expedition.
Jim has visited the International Space Station on three separate missions. He was mission specialist on board STS-89 on the Space Shuttle Endeavour (23.01.98-31.01.98), STS-104 on board Atlantis (12.07.01-25.07-01) and STS 117 also on board Atlantis (08.06.07-22.06.07).
Even more fittingly for us, Jim has also recently returned from Antarctica as part of his current role.

#TimeTravelTuesday This week we go back to 1901 and see Discovery in Dundee in the days after her launch and with work taking place to ready her for what was to become known as the Discovery Expedition (1901-1904). The second is from the same viewpoint today. There have been a lot of changes on board in her 119 years but there is no denying she is still a stunning ship to be on!
I wonder how many people have walked her decks over the years. What is your earliest memory of seeing the Discovery and being on board?

We’re delving into our NASA collection as this week’s Object of the Week is the mission patch for the tragic ‘Challenger’ mission. If you look closely the patch shows 'Challenger' launching from the Kennedy Space Centre in Florida. The seven stars shown in the U.S flag represent the five astronauts and two payload specialists and their names encircle the design. Christa McAuliffe’s surname is followed by a symbolic apple because she was civilian teacher selected to take part in NASA’s Teach in Space program.

Sadly, a structural failure 73 seconds after launch had disastrous consequences, killing all seven crew members - Commander Dick Scobee, Pilot Michael J. Smith, Mission Specialists Ellison S. Onizuka, Judith A. Resnick and Ronald E. McNair, and Payload Specialists Gregory Jarvis and Christa McAuliffe.

This week's Object of the Week is a colour advert for Ind Coope’s Arctic Ale. This ale was included in the provision list for the British North Greenland Expedition 1952-1954 and it claims to ‘keep out the cold’ which is just as well as, during the expedition, temperatures below −59.4°C (or −75 °F) were recorded ! Gives a new meaning to ‘grabbing a cold one’, doesn’t it?!

Made in Dundee | Designed for Adventure.

Launched into the River Tay, Dundee on 21st March 1901, the Discovery was the first purpose built research vessel for the polar regions constructed in the UK. Her construction by the Dundee Shipbuilder’s Company had amazingly taken just one year. After her launch she was fitted with engines and boilers by the Dundee engineering firm Gourlay Brothers and her sailcloth was provided by the Baxter Brothers’ Dens Works - a true Dundee ship in all aspects.

Her famous first expedition, which became known as the Discovery Expedition (1901-1904), saw her sail to the largely unknown frozen continent of Antarctica. Her crew consisted of men now forever linked to Antarctic exploration, men such as Robert Falcon Scott, Ernest Shackleton, Edward Wilson, Tom Crean and Frank Wild. During this expedition the Discovery survived being surrounded by ice for two years while her crew carried out numerous scientific surveys and charted vast areas of previously unexplored coastine, islands and the Antarctic interior.

Following her returning to the UK, the Discovery was sold to The Hudson’s Bay Company (HBC) in January 1905. Converted to a cargo ship, she sailed return journeys from London to Hudson’s Bay, Canada. Her outward cargo included mail, foodstuffs and gunpowder, returning with furs and on one occasion a live black bear destined for London Zoo.

In 1916, while still owned by HBC, Discovery was loaned to the British government to rescue the men of Shackleton’s Endurance Expedition. On arriving at Montevideo, just four weeks after leaving the UK, the crew of Discovery were informed that Shackleton had succeeded in rescuing his men on the fourth attempt of trying. After loading with cargo she returned to the UK and to the HBC.

During the First World War she was used to transport munitions on behalf of the French Government, calling in at ports such as Archangel, Bordeaux, Halifax, Plymouth, New York and Dundee. At the height of Russian Civil War (1917-1921) she aided the White Army by taking supplies to the Black Sea port of Novorossiysk.

In 1923 Discovery was bought by the British Dependency of the Falkland Islands. Following an extensive refit at Vosper’s shipyard in Portsmouth she was ready for the Oceanographic Expedition (1925-1927) which took her to the South Atlantic. The aim was to investigate the life cycles of whales, with a view to providing a scientific basis for regulation of the whaling industry whose zealous over-fishing had drastically reduced the whale population. Recognising the nature of the expedition she became Royal Research Ship (RRS) Discovery.

Discovery’s final voyage to the Antarctic was on the British, Australian and New Zealand Antarctic Research Expedition, more commonly known as BANZARE (1929-1931). The purposes of the expedition were listed as being threefold: “firstly, political; secondly, economic and commercial; thirdly, scientific”. BANZARE was led by explorer Sir Douglas Mawson, with Discovery’s master being Captain J.K Davis and then Captain K. N MacKenzie for the second summer.

Following BANZARE, Discovery had come to the end of her exploration years and in 1936 the Boy Scout Association became her new owner. She was now used as a training ship for Sea Scouts and for the first time Discovery also became a museum for the general public. By the 1950s the cost of upkeep had become too much and she was sold to the Admiralty to be used as a training or ‘drill’ ship by the Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve; for this role she was redesignated HMS Discovery.

In April 1979 she became RRS Discovery once more when the Maritime Trust took ownership and began repairs and restoration. She spent 7 years open to the public in St Katharine’s Dock as part of their Historic Ship Collection, with displays on board provided by the National Maritime Museum. She remained in London until 1986 when an agreement was reached between Dundee Heritage Trust, the Maritime Trust and the Scottish Development Agency which saw Discovery return home to Dundee. Initially she was berthed in Victoria Dock before making her final move in 1992 to the purpose-built Discovery Point - less than 500 metres from where she was first launched 92 years before.

A visit to Discovery Point allows you to view over 150 historic objects relating to Discovery’s incredible story, as well enjoy over 20 audio visual displays and hands on interactives for all ages. The star attraction is of course the RRS Discovery herself and the opportunity to explore all her deck levels and spend as long as you wish walking in the footsteps of those incredible men of the Heroic Age of Antarctic Exploration.

Hi there. My name is Michael Harris and I was stationed on this beautiful ship as a Sea scout many years ago. I was only 13 at the time and I only have distant fond memories of my time on board upon the river Thames in London. I spent two or three years in the cadets and rose several ranks among the boys. I was issued with the ships whistle and to this day it fills me with pride every time I see it. However, I was wondering if this may be something that you may like for your museum in Dundee. I have been there to visit the ship and I would very much like to do so again. If this item is of interest to you please contact back and I will endeavour to see it gets to you. Michael.
Enjoyed my trip round Discovery Point and RRS Discovery very much. Quite quiet - no big crowds on a Sunday morning. Really interesting and informative. It is a very "Hands-on" experience though - touch-screen displays, boxes to open, earpieces to pick up and hold to your ear for a sustained period. Can't go onto the ship without gripping the handrail. So I wondered, in the current COVID-19 pandemic, what additional measures have been/will be put in place to protect the public from contact with contaminated surfaces? There was hand-gel at the desk/cafe if I recall correctly but no other changes that I noticed.
I have an old blue print of when the sea scouts of England owned and used the HMS Discovery- the ultimate sea base! It was discovered in a London area attic after someone got divorced and put it up on eBay. It is in fair condition, a bit largish, and has all of teh sea scout areas labeled by the original company. Any idea what it is worth?
This such a well planned and informative exhibition. Very easy to follow the process from building the ship through to its voyage. Only two very minor comments for the administrators of the exhibition to consider. 1) The comentator of the film repeatedly mispronounces Arctic by missing out the hard c. Artic is a shortened version of an articulated lorry! 2) Far too much coal is in boiler's furnace. Take out at least 25% and it will look more authentic. I'm an old geezer - been there, done it as an engineer on a coaster powered by a triple expansion steam engine.
Copy of photograph (original given to Discovery Museum) showing my Great Grandfather Capt John McGlashan, in the middle of the group of 3 men just behind the lifebuoy, during the seatrails. Given to understand tall man to the right of the group of three could be Ernest Shackleton. Any information on other persons welcome.
