Exhibition of 1368 Woodpeckers in Unknown Manuscript

The State Darwin Museum has opened the exhibition 1368 Drawings of Woodpeckers in Unknown Manuscript.

      Every museum has its own secrets reliably hidden in their storage rooms. The secret of the invaluable collection of the Darvin Museum is Edward Hargitt’s illustrated manuscript about woodpeckers of the 19th century. For a whole century it was considered to be lost. More than one thousand woodpeckers have got together at the exhibition to solve the puzzle of the manuscript disappearance. It has its own midgets and giants, dandies and world-beaters. Do not miss the rare opportunity of seeing the American royal woodpecker that became extinct more than a century ago. There are no more than one hundred such specimen in the world and only one is there in Russia.

      The exhibition runs till January 25, 2015.
