Happy birthday Darwin… next year

Everyone at the museum are really excited about Darwin’s 200th birthday next year. Darwin was a scientific genius who published a book called the Origin of the Species which set out his ideas on evolution through natural selection.

Manchester Museum, along with museums up and down the country are putting on exhibitions marking this event. The Natural History Museum are about to open their exhibition with some of Darwin’s finest specimens. Our exhibition in Manchester will open October 2009 and will use specimens Darwin collected to tell the story of the major events in Darwin’s life. A fantastic range of learning and public activities will happen at the same time.
