Through its stunning collections of objects, manuscripts and images the Scott Polar Research Institute tells awe inspiring stories about polar exploration, history and science.

Your donation will support The Polar Museum, Thomas H Manning Polar Archives and our in-house Picture Library to illustrate Britain's, and the University of Cambridge's, unique place in polar history. It will also enable us to communicate the vital work of our own environmental and social scientists to a broad audience.
