Do your little ones ever wonder how there are so many different animals that behave in so many different ways?

Well, Charles Darwin was thinking the same thing nearly 200 years ago! 

In this special event for family Members, children will be able to interact with Charles Darwin to understand and learn more about his theory of evolution. Children will also enjoy creating their very own origami Galapagos finch to take home. This event is ideal for children between the ages of four and eight.

The event is open to Members and Patrons and will take place in our Library room on the second floor of the Anning Rooms.

Before or after your session, stop by our Anning Rooms restaurant to enjoy our kids menu. Members must book a ticket for themselves, and their children, and all children must be accompanied by an adult.

  • Important information

    There is a maximum of three children per adult.
