In our exhibition The Ark we invite you to explore how different species have evolved. We start by looking at how we study older objects and the creation of fossils.

On the tree of life you can see an example of how one organism, over millions of years, has developed into several new species. Do you know how we determine what an animal eats and its habitat by examining its features? What types of species do you think we have in Norway? Can you recognize any of the birds?

This exhibition has sound effects and a craft activity section with different colouring sheets of animals and coloured pencils.
