Antarctic Heritage Trust is a world leader in cold-climate heritage conservation and in 2017 completed the conservation of the first 1957 building erected at New Zealand’s Scott Base in Antarctica.
Antarctic Heritage Trust invites you to explore Sir Edmund Hillary’s Antarctic hut through a new, ground-breaking virtual reality experience.
In partnership with Auckland University of Technology (AUT) and Staples VR the Trust has developed this virtual reality experience to celebrate New Zealand’s connection with Antarctica.
This large scale project brings Antarctica to people in a way never seen before.
Hillary’s Hut was initially used as a base for the party of 23 men engaged in exploration and important scientific research as part of the Commonwealth Trans-Antarctic Expedition (TAE) and the New Zealand party of the International Geophysical Year (IGY).
Join us and step inside Sir Ed’s Antarctic hut and find out what life was like living in the world’s most extreme environment as these men furthered science and exploration.
Thanks to Antarctica New Zealand for their support.
