Over the hill at New Zealand's Scott Base, there is a team of workers who are taking care of artifacts down here. There are three explorers huts here on Ross Island, with a lot of cool gear and food left inside. (There are three that I've heard of and have been to-- there may be others.)

It's really cool to go into these old huts and see the laboratory equipment, reindeer-skin sleeping bags, and cool junk the explorers left behind. The big expeditions were those of Robert Scott and Earnest Shackleton. Roald Amundsen was the guy who actually made it to the pole first, but he didn't have any bases near here.

You can see the AHT's site here: The blog shows pictures of the conservators in action, as well as some other activities taking place over there.
