Museum of Idaho examines math, science and Dinosaurs

The Museum of Idaho is preparing to host two traveling exhibitions of Darwin and Dinosaurs that explores the works of and legacy of Charles Darwin and Archimedes of Syracuse.

Archimedes: Science & Innovations will follow the workings of Greek mathematician Archimedes of Syracuse whose inventions revolutionized the ancient world. The exhibition will feature more than 60 items, including reconstructions of lost technology. It will run from January 25 through September 26, 2019.

Darwin & Dinosaurs will take visitors through a series of 19th-century discoveries that forever altered how scientist viewed the world with 13 full and partial cats of dinosaur skeletons that question the concept of extinction and an earth that was much older than previously thought. This exhibit will also highlight the life and work of Charles Darwin who set out to discover some of the earth’s most shattering discoveries. It will run from September 27 through May 31, 2020.

The current traveling exhibit, Discover Steampunk will remain open until January 6, 2019. Archimedes: Science & Innovations will open in the current space after a three-week closure, and Darwin & Dinosaurs will be hosted in the newly expanded portion of the museum, which is currently under construction.
