Kerry County Museum's new Tom Crean exhibition
Forbo’s revolutionary printed vinyl flooring creates focal point of exhibition
Tom Crean, a native of Annascaul, Co. Kerry, served on three Antarctic expeditions in the early 1900s including the Shackleton Expedition were he was instrumental in the rescue of the crew of the expedition ship Endurance. To celebrate Tom Crean’s achievements the Kerry County Museum has opened a new exhibition exploring his life and adventures in Antarctica, the most desolate place on Earth and how he and his fellow polar explorers survived terrible dangers and endured shocking hardships.
Using Forbo’s revolutionary printed vinyl flooring the exhibition floor has been turned into a map of Antarctica showing the perilous journey Tom and the crew of the lifeboat James Caird took to summon rescuers from the whaling station in South Georgia, making it the focal point of the exhibition.
