Roald Amundsen Memorial Lectures 2018

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.
