Discovery Point

Interesting
Designed in Dundee in 1901 especially for scientific discovery missions, this vessel is the pride of Dundee. It was ordered by Captain Scott, during his expedition to the Antarctic (1901-1904). Today in dry dock, it is the main piece in an audio-visual exhibition devoted to his Antarctic trip and others.
