Additional information

Fossils provide evidence of how organisms have evolved and ecosystems have changed through time—and offer clues to our present and future. The Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History recently completed a 7-year renovation of its Fossil Hall.

In this FREE, virtual Evolution Matters lecture Matthew Carrano, lead curator of the Fossil Hall, will describe the museum’s approach to creating a modern, relevant exhibition for the 21st century, featuring new research and more than seven hundred fossils.
