Hillary's hut restored!

The Trust’s team on the Ice spent three months this summer working to restore Hillary’s Hut and the artefacts inside. Thanks to a successful public fundraising campaign and support from the New Zealand Government the Hut was restored and artefacts conserved in time for Scott Base’s 60th anniversary celebrations in January 2017 . Now painted with its original colours this important piece of Antarctic history stands out once again.
