The Royal Arctic Institute was an organisation of Arctic explorers. The majority of its members were men. Its headquarters was a grand stone-fronted building located on Mornington Square, in Kensington in London. There, members could dine or use the library of rare books. Some of the artefacts on display included the skull of a panserbjørn and the harpoon used to kill the whale Grimssdur.
