Visitors will gain insight on the stories behind the extensive collection which houses items such as a handwritten extract from On the Origin of Species, a Martian meteorite, a ‘cursed’ amethyst and even a collection of insects from Alfred Russel Wallace’s Malay Archipelago expedition; all of which were carefully curated from the 18th century to present day. And it shows how these explorations have revolutionised mans’ understanding of nature.
