From now till 29 April 2018, uncover a treasure trove of priceless artifacts and specimens that have shaped our understanding of the natural world at ArtScience Museum’s latest exhibition – Treasures of the Natural World.
The exhibition showcases over 200 of the star objects from the world renowned Natural History Museum in London. Showing in Southeast Asia for the first time, these unique treasures have been hand-picked from over 80 million specimens, representing the best of the museum’s collection.
Go on a voyage of discovery, through the centuries, from the Enlightenment of the 18th Century through to the present day, and see how pioneering explorers, collectors and scientists revolutionized our understanding of nature.
Exhibition highlights include a handwritten extract from Charles Darwin’s On the Origin of Species, a magnificent sabre-toothed cat, a Martian meteorite, a mysterious ‘cursed’ amethyst, and a selection of Alfred Russel Wallace’s collection of insects from his Malay Archipelago expedition to Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia. The riveting stories behind each treasure are told within the exhibition, with selected treasures brought vividly to life through special effects.
