News posts

Finally, it's almost spring. So it's fitting that this weekend the Museum offers the sights of a hot-weather-loving Gila monster and golden poison frogs in The Power of Poison and free-flying tropical butterflies in The Butterfly Conservatory.

The Power of Poison

Among other live animals, see a desert-dwelling Gila monster and South American golden poison frogs in The Power of Poison, our special exhibition about poison in nature, medicine, myth, and more.
