A brrr-illiant day of polar science at the National Maritime Museum


Calling all budding polar scientists! 
This November, come and meet the UK Polar Network at the National Maritime Museum for a fun-filled day of events and activities.

Discover the latest in polar research, explore polar habitats and put your questions to early career scientists.

Head to the Great Map on level 1 for an opportunity to dress like a Polar Scientist, see how tall you are compared to Polar animals or colour some creatures. 

Across the day, hear from Polar scientists talking about their experiences working with seabirds or exploring the Arctic via boat. Come along and ask questions!

On the ground floor, get creative with activities inspired by Polar animals. 

* Suitable for all ages.
