Fun with Poison: Tour, Walk and Talk
May 30, 2014
End your week with an exclusive after-hours tour of the Museum's popular exhibition The Power of Poison, led by Curator Mark Siddall and his merry band of poison experts from the fields of forensics, food, history, literature, and medicine, to discover how poison has shaped the course of human history. Then walk, talk, and taste your way through the gardens, streets, and shops of Manhattan’s Upper West Side with a scientist-led “poison promenade.” Our final stop is a celebrated neighborhood spot where you can continue the conversation with experts and researchers in an intimate, informal setting.
This event is a production of the World Science Festival presented in collaboration with the American Museum of Natural History.
