Happy Halloween! Three wicked witches—brewing a vile concoction—will greet you in upcoming exhibition The Power of Poison, opening Saturday, November 16. Can you guess which they are?
A brand-new exhibition, The Power of Poison, is opening in less than two weeks, on Saturday, November 16, and it promises a tantalizing look at poisons in nature, in myth and legend, as medicine, and far more.
A curious confluence of history, industry, and art can be seen in the skull of a rough-toothed dolphin, Steno bredanensis, featured in the special exhibition Whales: Giants of the Deep, open only through Sunday, January 5, 2014.
Made from a single Western red cedar tree, the 63-foot-long Great Canoe on display in the Museum's Grand Gallery was brought to New York in 1883.
