Description: Roald Amundsen’s House remains much as he left it when he disappeared in 1928. The story of one of the world’s foremost polar explorers is preserved as if in a time capsule within the walls of his home located in Bunnefjorden, south of Oslo. Amundsen planned and prepared several of his greatest polar expeditions from this house including; the conquest of the South Pole in 1911, the traverse through the Northeast Passage in 1918–1925 and the first overflight of the North Pole in 1926.

Review: Roald Amundsen is a Norwegian explorer best known for exploring the polar regions and a key figure of the Heroic Age of Antarctic Exploration. This app is a look into his home and the type of research he did as well as many of the things he used during the exploration in 1903. I personally found it rather interesting and it is also interactive, all be it in the form of inspecting things and opening things. It looks great, features tonnes of educational material and its 100% free. Used in the right setting it will be invaluable but for common day people it’s still an interesting app that is well worth a look.
