Robert Peary was one of the most accomplished explorers of his lifetime, making eight trips total to the Arctic. What better way for our museum to continue his legacy than to make sure his doll counterpart plants his flag all over other parts of the globe?

For the past few years, we’ve been having visitors take their Peary dolls on their travels, snap a photo, and send it back to us so we can put it on the website. Here are some of my favorite snapshots…Peary’s covered a lot of ground with this little project!

You can check out the full gallery here. And you can always buy a Peary doll for yourself, and send us a picture of his travels!
