Our Open Saturdays invite everyone to explore the exhibition in our campus Cultural Zone and take part in related activities including curator talks, hands-on DNA-based science and catch a tour of the Wellcome Genome Campus. 

The current exhibition is called Hidden Lives and explores what a human genome can reveal about us all - past and present.

The exhibition was inspired by a series of archaeological excavations at the Wellcome Genome Campus, accompanied by many interesting finds. By combining archaeology with cutting-edge genomics research we are discovering who lived on this site thousands of years ago. The exhibition  features archaeological finds, including human skeletal remains, along with film and hands-on activities to reveal some of the conclusions of these hidden lives of our ancestors.

Open Saturdays are free but booking is essential.
