Be among the first to view the exciting new exhibition The Power of Poison, which explores poison’s paradoxical roles in nature, human health and history, literature, and myth. Whether as a defense against predators, a source of magical strength, or a lethal weapon used as lifesaving medical treatment, the story of poison is surprising at every turn.

Afterward, join fellow Members for a glass of wine in the Akeley Hall of African Mammals.
