Poisons frighten and fascinate us, whether they are a means of defense or power, a targeted or biological weapon, an environmental threat or a potential medical breakthrough. They have played many roles in history and culture, science and beliefs, medicine and criminology.

Designed and curated by the Musée des Confluences in Lyon, France, and adapted by Musée de la civilisation, this interdisciplinary exhibition marries collections from the life and earth sciences and from the human sciences. Visual arts, documentaries, multimedia devices and living creatures come together to dialogue with ethnographic and natural science collections.

From January, 25 - GUIDED TOUR 
Venenum, a Poisonous World

Accompanied by a guide-interpreter, learn about natural poisons and their many uses.
