At the turn of the millennium, a group of Adventurers decided to embark on the ultimate driving trip with the aim to explore and learn about as much of the world as possible. This extraordinary Millennium Adventure that lasted three years was to span 116 countries and covered a driving distance of over 245,000 kilometers!

Presented through the generous support of Jim Rogers, the Travel & Discovery exhibition is an elaborate diorama setting that aims to present a snapshot of the Millennium Adventure, so as to capture the imagination of the public and to inspire their desire for exploration and adventure.
