Lectures & Excursions

“The greatest survival story of all time” comes to the Denver Museum of Nature & Science. Shackleton’s Antarctic Adventure brings the true story of an epic struggle for existence to the Phipps IMAX® Theater. Stranded and hopeless at the bottom of the world, Sir Ernest Shackleton and his twenty-seven-man crew endured the harshest living conditions imaginable, surviving on the barren ice floes of Antarctica during the turn of the century.

Narrated by Oscar winner Kevin Spacey, this extraordinary film documents Shackleton’s daily commitment to help sustain hope among his crew even during the most harrowing of circumstances. Through perseverance and teamwork not one man was lost during the more than one and a half year ordeal. Premiering September 21, Shackleton’s Antarctic Adventure will inspire the explorer, science enthusiast, and leader in everyone.
