This comprehensive exhibition explores the extraordinary life of Charles Darwin (1809-1882) whose curiosity, observations and discoveries nearly 150 years ago forever changed the perception of the origin of species and launched modern biological science. Simple yet at times controversial, misunderstood and misused for social goals, Darwin's theory of evolution by natural selection theory remains unchallenged as the central concept of modern biology.
In addition to his theory of evolution, Darwin is known for his work as a botanist, geologist, and naturalist. From specimens of Galápagos finches to original manuscripts and notebooks, the exhibition, on display in the spacious new Garfield Weston Exhibition Hall in the Lee-Chin Crystal, is the broadest collection ever assembled on the life and work of Darwin.
