Alfred Russel Wallace (1823-1913) is famous for independently discovering the process of evolution by natural selection alongside Charles Darwin, yet today few remember this great Welsh scientist. Originally shown at National Museum Cardiff in 2013, this exhibition explores Wallace’s life and work, and in doing so raises awareness of this remarkable man.

Natural history specimens – including bugs, butterflies, birds and more – will highlight the work of Alfred Russel Wallace.
