Bonner Room

Nigel Bonner, former Deputy Director of the British Antarctic Survey, established South Georgia Whaling Museum in 1992. His contribution is remembered in this room, which houses displays on the South Georgia Heritage Trust, the history of the building and the museum, and the discovery of the island.

On one wall a large map of South Georgia also shows views from several places round the island and marks out the route that Shackleton took in 1916 when he sought rescue for his men.
