The Power of Poison

Exhibition Closed – This is a past exhibition that is no longer at the Witte Museum.

Step into the mist and vines of Colombia’s Chocó Forest—where many things might harm or heal you—and discover The Power of Poison. Poisonous plants appear on magical parchment, poison dart frogs hop near toxic caterpillars, and the role of poison in nature, literature, history and human health surrounds you in this captivating exhibit.

Special Thanks

The Power of Poison is generously supported by Mary Pat and Mike Bolner and Dr. John C. Browning, MD, FAAD, FAAP, MBA of Texas Dermatology and Laser Specialists.
