The exciting four-year renewal programme at Discovery Point, focusing on Captain Scott's ship, the RRS Discovery, was completed in March 2002.
The museum wanted to make the collections and the historic images of Discovery's own story as well as those of Scott's and his team's heroic journeys more accessible and interactive. Two new galleries were created: the Men of Discovery gallery tells the story of Discovery's great sail south from Dundee, the crew and their daily lives in Antarctica. The Heroes of the Ice gallery recounts the story of Scott and the crew after the 19011904 expedition, including the
fateful Terra Nova expedition.
Alongside the Discovery, the Quayside now has interactive exhibits designed to test seamanship skills.
