Ueno's National Museum of Nature and Science literally digs deep into the mysteries of evolution with this much-hyped exhibit, tracing the development of life on Earth over a whopping 400 million years. Fossils, life-sized models and 4K videos guide visitors from the origins of all life all the way to the present day, while taking time to explain specifics such as the importance of the Burgess Shale fossil fields in Canada and the fearsome appearance of humongous eurypterids. Brush up on your vertebrate proficiency, squeeze the claw of a 'sea scorpion' and ponder your own origins at this summer highlight.
