Roald Amundsen Memorial Lectures 2018

The Roald Amundsen Memorial Lectures are held each year at the Fram Museum during the first weekend of December

This year’s event was a big success with lots of our friends arriving from near and far to take part. The lectures were initiated with the opening of a new exhibition and book launch; Into The Mists: S.A. Andrée’s Balloon Expedition Towards the North Pole, and were followed by the recreation of a 9 course dinner held at the Royal Palace in Oslo in 1912 in honor of Roald Amundsen.

Have a look through some photos from the two day event below. You can also download the program and continue over to our Facebook page to see even more pictures.
