Did you know that we share our planet with more than 5 million species? Explore the amazing diversity of life on our planet, making use of the Museum’s considerable resources, including the fossil halls, genetics labs, and world-famous collections. Gain an understanding of the genetic and physical evidence for evolution, meet scientists who will expose you to careers in the biological sciences, and take behind-the-scenes tours of our research departments.
