Carnegie Museum of Natural History
Through September 4
The city where the iconic Mr. Yuk graphic was invented seems an ideal place to showcase this first-of-its-kind exhibition.
Expected to be a summer blockbuster, the thrilling exhibition combines innovative technologies, live animals and cutting-edge design to explore poison’s role in nature, science and popular culture.
Learn about the amazing poisons and chemicals that have evolved in nature, discover how plants and animals use toxins to protect themselves, view specimens and more.
Trek along a lush jungle path to encounter a live golden poison frog and tarantula, wander down a wooded path replicating a remote Columbian forest and see illustrations appear magically as you turn the pages of a giant cloth storybook.
You can also step into an enchanted fairytale diorama to see Snow White sleeping while witches brew pernicious concoctions in a bubbling cauldron, and discover how scientists use natural poisons to develop medical treatments.
