Colour And VisionColour and Vision at the Natural History Museum follows a 565-million-year journey through the eyes of nature. Exploring the role of colour and vision in nature, it looks at how vision first evolved and how colour in animals fast became the difference between life and death. See how a rainbow of pigments and iridescence can be used as a warning, a disguise or an invitation. Visitors will also be able to discover how colour in nature is a big influence for art design and innovation, and what it means to them. The exhibition features more than 350 rarely seen specimens, from birds to fossils.
