The world has been captivated by the theories of Charles Darwin for a over a century. Celebrating this legacy is what HMNS is all about!

When we introduced the concept of Darwin Day as a way to help convey the concept of evolution to children in the most fun way possible I had volunteers chomping at the bit to join in the fun.

Join us this Saturday to see live animals, study adaptations in insects, create an evolutionary timeline that runs the length of the entire Museum, meet Paleontologists, and explore representations of human evolution!

The fun is not just for kids, though, there is an entire series of events happening theough Darwin 2009 Houston – check out this page for all the happenings at HMNS. From teacher workshops and lectures to exhibits on The Origin of the Species – it’s going to be a year to remember one of the most influential scientists in recent history.

Darwin Day will be taking place at HMNS on Saturday, February 7 from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. and is FREE to the public!
