This exhibition presents an extraordinary, comprehensive three-dimensional biography of the life, work, and legacy of Charles Robert Darwin (1809−1882). Best known for his revolutionary theory of evolution by natural selection, Darwin and his extraordinary ideas are still considered revolutionary more than 150 years after his publication of On the Origin of Species (1859). This landmark exhibition offers visitors a unique glimpse into Darwin’s intellectual and personal world and the experiences that first led him to formulate his groundbreaking theory.
