Tour the Explorers Club, basecamp for great expeditions past and future
Welcome to the Explorers Club, perhaps the most influential professional society you’ve never heard of – or at least, one of the most fascinating. In this video, Will Roseman, the Explorers Club’s executive director, gives a guided tour through the society’s imposing New York City headquarters. Despite its rather colonial character, the Explorers Club is more than just a glorified cigar room for the elite. Since being founded in 1904, the society has been an influential champion of science and field research, with Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, Jane Goodall, Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay among its members.
