The possibility of finding aliens is indeed intriguing, but the story of our home planet Earth is no less jaw-dropping than a Hollywood movie. The action of explosive volcanoes spewing red-hot lava, asteroid bombardment, titanic collisions of tectonic plates, and tales of the coldest, hottest, deepest and highest spots on Earth are fascinating. Not to forget the Homo sapiens, the heroes who survived the dangers of extinction at every step, unscathed.

Join us as we take you through the journey of the evolution of the Earth at the Natural History Museum, Chandigarh. We will explore the origins of our planet and of life through 14 huge cycloramas, witness the Big Bang that occurred 13.5 billion years ago, learn about the rise of the Homo sapiens in the Holocene age and the evolution of the modern man and how he came to dominate the planet.

At the Dinosaur Gallery, join us on a treasure hunt of these prehistoric reptiles, and dig out some fossils (hope you don’t mind the fossilised poop of a herbivorous dinosaur)!


This guided tour is free.
