The Manchester Museum's ebulletin for adults

What's on in September 2009

Welcome to The Manchester Museum's September ebulletin for adults.

A Darwin Extravaganza has now been launched! Find out about Charles Darwin's life and work, the theory of evolution and science since Charles Darwin. Come and explore how science works, the difference between faith and fact, and how Darwin's work has been used and abused.

This month why not take a look at our new exhibition In Darwin's Footsteps, which explores South American landscapes and wildlife which Darwin saw. Keep an eye out for our events and talks linked to the exhibitions.

We hope to see you soon!
