Encounter some of the world’s most venomous creatures and discover their surprising connection to human health.

Get up close to all kinds of specimens, from snakes, centipedes, snails and scorpions to the unassuming platypus.

See the world through the eyes of both predator and prey and explore the effects of venom and the role it plays in the natural world.

Find out how across cultures and time, humans have found creative ways to neutralise and harness the properties of venom, and how today some of nature’s deadliest venoms are actually saving lives.

Please note this exhibition contains content that some may find distressing.
