Death in the ice: The Shocking Story of Franklin’s Final Expedition
 

A mystery that still remains unsolved today.

With over 200 objects on display, alongside finds from HMS Erebus – whose resting place was only discovered in 2014 – on show for the very first time in Europe, the exhibition promises to advance your understanding of the expedition, to reveal the Victorian fascination with the Arctic, and explore the evidence and theories put forward investigating whether scurvy, starvation, madness caused by lead poisoning, or even cannibalism caused the deaths of the 129 strong crew in the Arctic all those years ago.

What happened to HMS Erebus and her crew when they disappeared without trace in the Arctic wastes ?  Was it scurvy, starvation or maybe even cannibalism ?  Find out at this amazing exhibition that traces the story of Sir John Franklin’s final journey.
