KU Natural History Museum to Explore Evolution

The 5th floor gallery of the University of Kansas Natural History Museum is closed for renovation in preparation for the Explore Evolution exhibition, scheduled to open in November 2005 according to the museum's website.

Explore Evolution features the work of scientists who are making leading discoveries about the evolution of life. Common patterns and principles in the evolution of all organisms is the central theme of the exhibition.

The project is sponsored by the National Science Foundation's Informal Science Education Program and developed by a consortium of six museums working together with six statewide 4-H programs to make evolution research accessible to young people and the general public.

Although you can't view the exhibit until November, you can visit the Explore Evolution website now.

The University of Kansas Natural History Museum is located in Dyche Hall, on the main campus of the University of Kansas in Lawrence, Kan. It's open from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm Monday through Saturday, and Noon to 5:00 pm on Sunday.
