Enjoy a relaxed evening at the Stutterer exhibition, catch a pop-up curator talk, and stay for a drink in our bar.

Through a changing programme of displays and exhibitions the Cultural Zone explores the stories of genomics research, and encourages you to discuss the social impact of genetics. 

Objects, illustrations and film bring to life the story of the Human Genome Project; a project that revolutionised biomedical science and our ability to explore what makes us, and all life. You can also find out about trees of life. From medieval illustrations to Darwin’s sketches and beyond, trees have helped us understand how life is connected.
