Tell us what you think happened to Franklin and his crew, or tell us about your visit to the exhibition for a chance to win Royal Museums Greenwich Membership.

Death in the ice: the shocking story of Franklin's final expedition aims to uncover some of the mystery that shrouds the death of Sir John Franklin and the 128 men who went with him on that fatal voyage to search for the infamous North-West Passage.

While we know that all crewmen died, and we can piece together what might have caused their death, mystery still surrounds much of the story and the fatal decisions that were made.

What do you think happened to Franklin and his crew? Tell us, or share your experience of your visit to the exhibition on Twitter using #DeathInTheIce. All entries will be entered into a draw and the winner will recieve a year's membership to Royal Museums Greenwich. Please see full terms and conditions below.

Good luck!
