How have living things changed over time and how do we know?

This workshop explores evidence for evolution by handling real fossils from the Horniman’s collection and discussing what they are and what we can learn from them.

Students will compare the beaks of different birds, like Charles Darwin did, and also study some taxidermy animals and find out how they have adapted to their environment.

About Horniman Museum and Gardens.

Matilda The Musical Logo

The Horniman connects us all with global cultures and the natural environment, encouraging us to shape a positive future for the world we all share.

Learn about their world-class collections and discover information about world cultures, music, different species and the natural environment we all share.

There is more that unites us than divides us, and this can clearly be seen when looking at the 350,000 or so objects in the Horniman collections.
