The Natural History Museum's new 'Colour & Vision' exhibition explores nature's spectacular palette, and how 565 million years of colour and vision has filled the world with the vibrant hues and shades we see today.

You'll learn how vision first evolved, and how pigments and iridescence can be used as a warning, a disguise, or even an invitation — making colour the difference between life and death.

The exhibition features more than 350 rarely seen specimens, and a new light installation by British artist Liz West.
