From October 10, 2018 to August 11, 2019, the exhibition Poison reveals to the public about 30 poisonous species: snakes, lizards, spiders, arthropods … Beyond the fascination exerted by the poison as its producers, the exhibition invites visitors to discover its duality: harmful substance and healer.
The Palace of Discovery offers everyone the feeling of the thrill of poison. Reunited for the first time in France, thirty or so living animal species which, by their venom, are among the most dangerous in the world, will be presented to the public: snakes and spiders, but also frogs, centipedes … Beyond the beauty of the species, of the fascination tinged with fear that they inspire us like the danger of their poisons, will be approached the uses of these substances for the scientific research, in particular medical.
