The Michigan State University Museum presents its 13th annual Darwin Discovery Day, an afternoon of science, exploration and discovery, on Sunday, Feb. 11, 1-5 p.m. 

MSU scientists and students take part in Darwin Discovery Day to share their expertise and love of science with the public. The theme for this year’s event is “Endless Forms Most Beautiful….” Activities, tours and collections inspired by the theme will take over all three floors of the MSU Museum:

• Earn a prize with a Kidzone passport
• Ask Charles Darwin (MSU Professor Rich Bellon) a question
• Trek behind the scenes for a vertebrate collections tour
• Tour the Hall of Evolution and Habitat Hall
• Dig into lots of plant activities from MSU’s 4-H Children’s Garden, MSU Herbarium & Department of Forestry
• Check out the Museum Store
• Enjoy a piece of cake in honor of Darwin’s 208th birthday

Ask the experts: as a favorite tradition of the day, visitors are encouraged to bring in a rock, bone, fossil, tooth or other natural object for museum curators and faculty members to identify. (The MSU Museum cannot provide estimates on the commercial value of any specimen nor provide expertise on human-made artifacts at this program.)
