Arctic & Antarctic Museum information
Learn all about Soviet polar explorations at the Arctic & Antarctic Museum . Apart from stuffed polar bears and the like, the most impressive exhibit is a wooden boat plane hanging from the ceiling. Check out the informative website, though, for details of Vicaar, an Arctic expedition and tourism agency linked to the museum.
