Details

Darwins Palast, Darwin’s Palace, is a tribute to one of the world’s best museums and to an unequalled collection. The book opens on a detail from a museum frieze: an ape is holding up a mirror to man, showing him that he is only one among many other species – Darwin’s finding. The book makes us participate in the development of an impressive exposition. It makes us also cover the milestones of the origin of species by steps of millions of years – a light-footed and entertaining guide through the wonderful world of evolution. Fifteen researchers of the museum invite us on a specific little journey, making us meet with genetics, insects, parasites, religious and philosophical aspects of evolution or the origin of mankind.
