A Concert Hall for Science Biohistory Research Hall

The Biohistory Research Hall (BRH) is a forum (hall) where we examine, study what it means to be alive and express the processes and results of that work. A Concert Hall for Science Biohistory Research Hall is full of beautiful pictures and videos of the exhibits held by BRH that express – like musical performance at a concert hall – the stories about the history of living creatures and the way of living.
