Darwin’s Inspiration

Charles Darwin’s voyage on the Beagle changed both his life and the whole history of science, but what was it that made this journey so important for him? What did he observe? What did he discover? What did he learn?

The La inspiración de Darwin exhibition is a chance to discover the highlights of the naturalist’s journey through Chile: the crucial moments in the development of his scientific thinking. Each scene has been recreated in plasticine by the Plastivida art studio and was developed in conjunction with our partner science center CAPES.
