National Museum of Natural History plans a new hall exhibit on the story of human evolution

The National Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C., has announced it is dedicating a new hall to the story of human evolution that will partly focus on how changes in the natural world affected human development.

"To tell the biological, cultural and ecological story, exhibitions will include 75 cast reproductions of skulls from the past 6 million years, a reconstructed face of Sahelanthropus (one of the oldest known hominids), fossils of early apes and humans, a large exhibit devoted to the human family tree, and a bone bed where visitors can learn about different kinds of fossil evidence."

The hall is scheduled to open March 17, 2010 (St. Patrick's Day).
