Join us for a series of free events exploring the life and legacy of Alfred Russel Wallace, considered by many to be one of the greatest scientists of all time.
These events are part of the Museum's participation in Wallace100, an international programme celebrating the centenary of Wallace's death on 7 November 1913.
Leading biologists and historians will discuss different aspects of Wallace's life and work in these late afternoon monthly lectures and an October conference in the Flett Theatre. The events are free to attend but tickets must be booked in advance.
Next lecture: 6 June - Wallace versus Darwin presented by James Moore.
The Museum is also hosting a series of daytime Wallace-related talks in the Darwin Centre Attenborough Studio as part of our daily Nature Live events. These talks are free and anyone can drop in.
Details of the individual Wallace100 events are below.
