Explore the stories, art and maps of those who were there

It is 250 years since the Endeavour set sail from Plymouth. Our exhibition tells the story of Captain James Cook’s three world-changing voyages through original documents, many of which were produced by the artists, scientists and sailors on board the ships.
Maps, artworks and journals from the voyages sit alongside newly-commissioned films offering contemporary perspectives. Examine the expeditions that shaped Europe’s knowledge of the world and consider their far-reaching legacy.
See Cook’s handwritten journal detailing the first crossing of the Antarctic Circle, when they travelled further south than anyone in the world, stunning artwork including the earliest European depiction of a kangaroo, and intricate maps charting the voyages that spanned more than a decade. Learn about the experiences on board the EndeavourResolution and Discovery, and the impact of their arrival.
Drawings by the Polynesian high priest and navigator Tupaia, who accompanied Cook to New Zealand and Australia, will be displayed together for the first time. These will sit alongside works by expedition artists Sydney Parkinson, William Hodges and John Webber. 
Visit our James Cook: The Voyages website for a range of different perspectives on the voyages and their legacy and impact. These include responses from people of the communities Cook encountered, documented and learned from. You can also follow the timeline of the journeys, read articles about the individual voyages and immerse yourself in the expeditions through our digitised collection items.

The Cinema Museum - Kennington Noir, Celluloid Sorceress, People I Know screening & Polyland

Kennington Noir & Celluloid Sorceress June 20th, People I Know screening June 21st & Polyland June 22nd
Kennington Noir presents; Scarlet Street (1945), Wednesday 20th June @ 7:30pm
Kennington Noir presents Scarlet Street(1945), directed by Fritz Lang and starring Edward G. Robinson and Joan Bennett.
A lonely store cashier (the great Edward G. Robinson) is trapped in an unhappy marriage to a shrewish wife, and finds solace through his amateur painting hobby. Whilst on the way home one night he meets a beautiful woman (Joan Bennett) and he gradually becomes obsessed with her, seeing her as an escape from his humdrum existence and letting her believe that he is a wealthy artist. She plays along and takes advantage of his naiveté, manipulating him and extorting his money to support her own lifestyle. Her con-man boyfriend (Dan Duryea) gets her to pretend that the paintings are actually her own creations, and they attract a critic’s attention, until Edward G. finds out the truth, when the plot gets darker still.
The second of two noirs made by the same team, the other being The Woman In The Window (1944), this brilliant film could well be called the blackest of Fritz Lang’s American pictures. On its initial release it was censored in three US states and in the UK. Don’t miss!
Advance tickets are £6 - click below to purchase from Billetto or call 020 7840 2200 to purchase direct from the Museum by calling during office hours.

Screening of Polyland (2017) + Directors Q&A, Friday June 22nd @ 7:30pm
Polyland (2017) is a documentary film directed by Dasa Raimanova and Zofia Brom.
Polyland gives a voice to three strong female characters from different minorities in Poland and explores the nuances of how it feels to be black, Muslim or LGBTQ+ in the most homogenous country in an ever more right-leaning Europe. Polyland‘s three women were all born in Poland and currently are citizens of Wroclaw, the biggest city in Western Poland. Ania, Miriam and Elmelda seek to be seen, not as “the other”, but as a part of Polish society.
Their efforts involve creating self-help groups, organizing protests and appearances on local TV and… Everything appears to be going towards the right direction, the women believe that a liberal society is within reach until the dramatic shift in Polish politics in 2015 shatters their hopes and confidence.
Their wish for belonging reflects many other stories across the world and seems increasingly difficult to achieve in the current political climate of Brexit, Donald Trump and the upsurge of right-wing movements across Europe.
See the film’s website for more details.

Advance tickets are £8.50 (£6.50 concession) and may be purchased from Billetto, or call 020 7840 2200 to purchase direct from the Museum by calling during office hours.  If you would prefer to pay on the door, the price will be £10 (£7 concession).
A Fantastic Woman (2018), Wednesday 30th May 7:45pm - 10pm 
Rising star Daniela Vega plays Marina, a young singer whose life is thrown into turmoil following the sudden death of her partner, Orlando. Met with suspicion and contempt from all sides, Marina comes under intense scrutiny, with no regard for her privacy, or her grief. As tensions rise between Marina and Orlando’s family, Marina somehow finds the strength to fight back. An urgent call for compassion towards a community that faces bigotry and hostility on a daily basis, this Oscar-winner is simply a must see. 
Join us before the film for a guest talk with a local trans activist hosted in partnership with Gendered Intelligence.  This screening will take place at Harris Academy, South Norwood, SE25 6AE.

Walking tour of Oxford
Follow in the footsteps of Oxford's famous students, from C.S. Lewis to Bill Clinton, as you stroll the captivating college courtyards and cobbled lanes of this historic university town. Take in the famous 'dreaming spires' and see the Bodleian Library – one of the oldest libraries in Europe – on your visit. You'll be captivated by the unspoilt narrow alleys and ancient squares of this naturally beautiful town.

Christ Church 
A treat for moviegoers of all ages, Christ Church, is instantly recognisable as one of the major locations for the Harry Potter films! Marvel at the magical grandeur of the Great Hall, used as the setting for Hogwarts.


Senate House
Once you’ve left Oxford, you’ll make your way to the beautiful city of Cambridge. It’s here that you will visit Senate House at the world-famous University of Cambridge. Before used by the Council of the Senate for important meetings, it is now the chosen location for students’ degree ceremonies. You’ll get to explore this special location and discover its important history before venturing onto the Corpus Clock!

Corpus Clock
Visit the Corpus Clock, a unique invention outside the Taylor Library at Corpus Christi College, Cambridge University. Revealed to the world by Stephen Hawking, it is made from a 24-carat gold-plated stainless steel disc and has no numbers to tell the time. Instead, it shows the time through lights that shine through individual slits. This unmissable innovation will stay in your mind long after you’ve left!

Mathematical Bridge
You’ll also get to see Cambridge’s Mathematical Bridge during your stop. Designed by William Etheridge, it is nearly 300 years old and has attracted visitors from all across the world. The design gives visitors an intriguing conundrum – it uses only straight timbers but the bridge arches. It’s an absolute must-see!

King’s College Chapel 
One of the main highlights of the trip is visiting the exquisite King’s, College Chapel. Used as a symbol representing the city of Cambridge, the Chapel is a popular tourist attraction for people across the world. Taking a century to build, starting in 1446 on Henry VI’s demands, King’s College Chapel displays wonderful gothic architecture and huge, enchanting stained glass windows. Featuring the world’s largest fan vault and famous artwork from Rubens, there’s plenty to learn and discover at the home of the King’s College Chapel Choir.

Estimated arrival time back to London is around 7.00pm.
