The Darwin exhibition (finally) comes to London

These are exciting times at the Natural History Museum (my main gig), what with Darwin's 200th birthday less than four months away and multiple programmes and projects relating to the bicentenary really starting to kick into gear.

One of the most exciting of these is the opening of the exhibition Darwin (of AMNH origin) at the museum in London on 14th November ...just five weeks away now (not that I'm counting, oh no, not me).

The official announcement is up online, and we've been instructed to put the following into our email signatures, which is surely a sign that, at long last, it's really going to happen:

Coming soon...
Darwin. 14 November 2008 - 19 April 2009. Explore Darwin's life and the revolutionary big idea that changed our understanding of the world and our place within it. Tickets on sale now.

I saw it at AMNH and it was AMAZING. Especially the original "I think..." drawing. Enjoy!

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to discover who modelled for Darwin's finger.

Richard - I didn't tell you? That was me. I have very old hands for my age.
