And here is the thing that I liked the most in the museum, “The Tree of Life”. It is a diagram showing the relationship among different types of living things or species of this planet. If one follows the lines linking any two species on the tree, he can know how much narrow or distant their relationship is. If the line is long, the relationship is distant and vice versa.
