Opening Saturday! The Power of Poison
Step inside a world where poison reigns: In The Power of Poison, an immersive new exhibition that opens this Saturday, visitors are invited to walk through a diorama of Colombia's Chocó lowland forest, which is filled with poisonous species; explore the variety of fairy tales and legends that feature poison; and visit a theater where a live presenter details a real-world murder-by-poison and the rise of toxicology, the science of detecting poison.
You can also download a free companion app, and solve cases of accidental poisoning. See a screen from the app below.
From flightless birds to flying fishes, see exquisitely rendered illustrations reproduced from holdings in the Museum Library Rare Book collection. Learn more in a video.
The exhibition, in IMAX Gallery on the Museum's first floor, is free for Members or with Museum admission. Learn more.
