DiscoveriesDiscoveries at Two Temple Place showcases key objects from all eight museums at the University of Cambridge, spanning millennia and disciplines. It features valuable artworks alongside rare scientific, anthropological zoological specimens, covering objects like Charles Darwins recently re-discovered Tinamou Egg, the only surviving egg from the HMS Beagle voyage, accidentally cracked by Darwin himself. The exhibition takes place at Two Temple Place, offering visitors a rare chance to glimpse the stunning interior of one of London's most remarkable hidden treasures.
