Darwin & Dinosaurs: The Exhibit

In 1859, Darwin published On the Origin of Species, in which he argued that all life forms are related through common descent and that different species emerged (and continue to emerge) as a result of natural selection.

It is widely considered to be one of the most important books in science.

But he didn’t dream it up one day walking in the park. It was the result of what he saw on a five year voyage around the world, studying the plants and animals of South America, the Galápagos Islands, and Australia, followed by years of research and experimentation. 

And his perspective and conclusions were only possible in light of then-recent geological and paleontological discoveries.

Darwin & Dinosaurs is a story-based, interactive exhibit that sets the stage before Darwin’s famous voyage, follows him around the world as he finds clues indicating life evolves, and concludes with modern discoveries that have proved him right.

Fascinating, engaging and, most importantly, educational, D&D lets visitors see the world as Darwin saw it.
