We've made some grand discoveries in our time; they have increase our knowledge of culture, history, nature, and the universe itself. Discoveries have also helped us develop medicines, create new ingenious inventions, and caused massive controversies over religion versus science.

You can make your own discoveries at Two Temple Place, where they are running an exhibition about imagination and knowledge. Showcasing a large collection of historical artefacts from the University of Cambridge Museums, you will be able to look at fossils, fine art, and modern Inuit sculpture.

Admission is free and the exhibit lasts until the 27th April. Highlights on display include Darwin's Tinamou Egg, which he found on his Beagle voyage between 1831-1836, a rare dodo skeleton, and a state-of-the art digital instrument that searches for sub-atomic particles in the frozen depths of Antarctica.

Also learn about the Muggletonians, a religious sect that rejected Newtonian science, and pompously believed the Earth was the centre of the universe.

Special events include 'City Stories', a gymnastic dance performance by Dance United, 'Poetry in Motion' by Unstructured Light, with Rumi poetry, lasers, music, and dance, and a 'Life Drawings Revelations' class. There will also be family activities such as crafts, board games, puppetry, and Easter fun.
