Be amazed by this replica of the iconic ship that Charles Darwin sailed the world in, collecting specimens that would inspire his theory of evolution.

It was on this ship, voyaging across South America and the Pacific, that the young Charles Darwin made many discoveries that would lead to his theories on evolution. Invited on board by Captain Robert Fitzroy (of barometer and weather forecasting fame), the two became great friends staving off the boredom and loneliness of life at sea.
