Treasures of the Natural World, Melbourne Museum, Carlton
Treasures of the Natural World is a one-of-a-kind exhibition that brings together the best of London's Natural History Museum‘s collection – and it's everyday at the Melbourne Museum until 16 January 2022!
More than 200 specimens from the Natural History Museum’s immense collections show the marvels of our natural world. From the unique or extremely rare to the mysterious and astonishing, every one of these invaluable objects has been carefully selected for its historical importance and its contribution to science.
Many of the items on display inspired scientific discoveries that changed how we understand life on Earth and provide insights into some of the world's greatest scientific minds.
Visitors to Melbourne Museum can look forward to seeing objects from the personal collections of Charles Darwin, a rare Martian meteorite that fell to Earth in 1911, 11 million years after it was blasted into space….
…..and a 200 million-year-old Ichthyosaurus fossil found by English fossil collector Mary Anning when she was just 11 years old.
Melbourne Museum‘s interpretation of the exhibition will be enriched by the addition of First Peoples’ narratives.
