The American Museum of Natural History maintains a Darwin section on its website based on a popular exhibit that appeared at the New York City museum from 2005 to 2006. The exhibition has traveled to Boston, Toronto and Chicago before going to the Natural History Museum in London for the 200th anniversary of Darwin’s birth.
The Darwin Correspondence Project, which focuses on the naturalist’s personal letters, has a section on Darwin and religion based on what his correspondence reveals about his personal religious beliefs.
For five months in 2009, London’s Natural History Museum hosted Darwin200 to celebrate the 200th anniversary of Darwin’s birth and the 150th anniversary of the publication of On the Origin of Species. The celebration included lectures, films, debates, performances and more. You can still learn about Darwin’s life and work through the museum’s website.
