Charles Darwin Exhibition Hall

When you come visit the Charles Darwin Research Station, you can't miss our Exhibition Hall! Inside the beautiful yellow building you will find extensive information about our nearly 60 years of scientific research in the archipelago, a rotating local photography exhibit, a room showcasing part of our natural history collections, a small presentations room, and a donations point.

Furthermore, we invite you to see our enormous and impressive skeleton of a Bryde's whale, climb our lookout and grab a snack from our charismatic 'Finch Cafeteria'. Restrooms are also available.

Opening Hours

Monday through Sunday
from 08:00 to 18:00

We open all year round, including public holidays.


The mission of the Charles Darwin Foundation and its Research Station is to tackle the greatest threats and challenges to Galapagos through scientific research and conservation action, in order to safeguard one of the world’s most important natural treasures.
