Images of Science and Exploration in the Victorian Century
This exhibition examines three of the most notable achievements of the Victorian age: the development of the theory of natural selection by Charles Darwin and Alfred Wallace; the decades-long search for the Northwest Passage by a succession of British expeditions, including the ill-fated venture of John Franklin; and the discovery by Lord Rayleigh and William Ramsay of argon.
