Darwin Day events in Seoul


From the Dong-a Ilbo (September of last year)

"Korea will also hold a series of commemorative exhibitions and publications. The Darwin Forum, consisting of philosophers and biologists, is revising the translation of Darwin’s three classics, “The Origin of Species,” “The Descent of Man,” and “The Expression of the Emotions in Man and Animals.”

Gwacheon National Science Museum, which opens Nov. 14, will hold a Darwin exhibition to commemorate its opening in Gyeonggi Province. The event will be jointly held with Dong-A Science and display Darwin’s publications and fossils he collected for six months."
I am not sure if the museum will show the fossil for six months or it is a display of fossils Darwin himself collected over the course of six months. Probably the former.
