Exploring Human Origins
September 9, 2016 to October 3, 2016
Based on a popular exhibition at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History this national traveling exhibition explores the process of scientific investigation by shedding light on what we know about human evolution and how we know it through interactive kiosks, hands-on displays, and videos. The exhibition will be accompanied by a series of free programs, including presentations by Smithsonian scientists.
"In our current social and political climate, it seems the question of what makes us human is increasingly relevant and important to ask ourselves. We hope that our programming provides community members of all ages the opportunity to demonstrate what it means to be human—through dialogue and through listening to and learning from each other. We are excited to go on this journey with you. Thank you for joining us." -- Richard Kong, Library Director
Exploring Human Origins: What Does It Mean to Be Human? was organized by the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History in collaboration with the American Library Association Public Programs Office. This project was made possible through the support of a grant from the John Templeton Foundation and support from the Peter Buck Human Origins Fund.
