ABSTRACT
The article offers information on the "Darwin Exhibition," opened in 2005 at the American Museum of Natural History in New York and will rest in the Natural History Museum in London, England in 2009. It explains that the exhibition's theme is consistent with the 1959 centenary of the publication of the book "The Origin of Species," by Charles Darwin and with the 1909 celebration of the 50th anniversary of the book. The exhibition claims that Darwin's theory of evolution has contributed to the changes in society.
