After browsing MSP’s savings selections, take a stroll past the exhibit Cold Recall: Reflections of a Polar Explorer, on loan from Norway’s Fram Museum, celebrating the 100th anniversary of Roald Amundsen’s journey to become the first explorer to reach the South Pole. The photo exhibit, located on Concourse C, is presented courtesy of the MSP Arts and Culture Program. The exhibit was secured through a partnership between the Honorary Royal Norwegian Consulate, Sons of Norway, a Norwegian-American fraternal life insurance organization dedicated to preserving Norwegian Heritage and Culture, the Bloomington Convention and Visitors Bureau and the Airport Foundation MSP.
