Part of Old South Pole Base on Display at New Seabee Museum

The new US Navy Seabee Museum has it's grand opening ceremony tomorrow, July 22, 2011. The new museum has an Antarctic exhibit that I really hope to see someday. The exhibit has pieces of the South Pole Geodesic dome base mounted above so you can look up and see it similar to how the base was at the South Pole until the latest South Pole base was completed. The pieces were dismantled in 2009 and brought to the museum in 2010. The Antarctic exhibit also has a subzero polar suit and the control panel from the South Pole base.
