Some Facts About the Exhibits

Opened in 2007, it is the first major exhibition to present, side by side, the mutually reinforcing evidence of the fossil record and cutting-edge DNA research.
The hall covers millions of years of human history, from the emergence of our earliest ancestors through the evolution of our own species.
The presentation is a fascinating mix of fossils, films, interactive media, life-size tableaux, ancient artifacts, and more.
