Scientists on the Trail of Domestic Animals at Glims Farmstead Museum

Share

On 14 April 2022, Glims Farmstead Museum will open an activity-oriented exhibition titled Scientists on the Trail of Domestic Animals, where you can peek into a DNA scientist’s lab. The exhibition shares the latest fascinating research results on the genome of the Finnhorse. The exhibition and the closely related programme also familiarise visitors with other animals of the Finnish countryside and discuss the change in the coexistence of people and domestic animals.

The exhibition reveals what has been discovered through DNA analysis, such as how the Finnhorse developed into such a versatile horse breed over the course of a century. Glims Farmstead Museum has collaborated with scientists from the University of Helsinki’s project to study the origin of the Finnhorse. The scientists collected biological mementos around Finland for DNA research, so the exhibition includes genuine samples, including bundles of horse hair and bone samples.

Scientists on the Trail of Domestic Animals continues the series of exhibitions at Glims on the theme of sustainable development that was launched last year with the Hero Pollinators exhibition. Museum visitors will now have the opportunity to explore the latest research on the genome of humans and animals, as the Clues to Our Roots exhibition at KAMU Espoo City Museum looks at the human genome for clues about our prehistoric roots.
