The display features material from exploration of the hot and cold parts of the world and examines the extraordinary challenges and achievements of many famous explorers. In the hot section we have the search for the source of the Nile and desert exploration (including expeditions in the Taklamakan Desert, the Arabian Desert and the Western/Libyan Desert). In the cold section we have the search for the Northwest Passage and the exploration of the Antarctic, and the climbing of Mount Everest.
