The Darwin family

Discover how Darwin’s children contributed to his science. Touch the items on the desk to see how they provided information on human expression as babies and helped with experiments when they were young. As adults, they sent observations, commented on drafts and provided illustrations for his books, designed and built scientific apparatus, and learned the latest experimental techniques.
