Capturing Science: Images Past and Present

Until 29 January


‘Charles Darwin in the form of an ape’ from The London Sketch Book, painted by Faustin Betbeder, 1874

‌A picture is worth a thousand words and captures a moment in time. Manchester is European City of Science throughout 2016 and to celebrate this, we are sharing a selection of our science collections.

From the end of medieval times to the present day, we’ll be exploring themes of medicine, astronomy, engineering and industry from around the globe.

Located in the Historic Reading Room, open daily, free entry.

Can we help?
