Treasures of the Natural World


Both a research institution and a fabulous museum, London's Natural History Museum shows off around 370 highlights from its collection of some 80 million specimens of animals, plants, fossils, rocks and minerals at this on-the-road exhibition that takes on Ueno's National Museum of Nature and Science in spring. See the original manuscript for Darwin's 'On the Origin of Species', fossils of ancient flying dinosaurs, materials from the HMS Challenger and Terra Nova expeditions, a taxidermied specimen of the extinct Japanese sea lion and much more.
