Wicked Plants: The Exhibit

Date/Time

Aug 1, 2019 to Sep 2, 2019
09:30 AM until 04:30 PM

This event occurs daily, every 1 day(s).

Description

Inspired by author Amy Stewart’s best-selling book Wicked Plants: The Weed that Killed Lincoln’s Mother and Other Botanical Atrocities, this family-friendly traveling exhibit gives visitors a safe, hands-on experience with some of the world’s most diabolical botanicals.

Thought-provoking and educational, Wicked Plants showcases plants associated with a variety of health effects, including pain, addiction, obesity, allergies, cognitive impairment and even death.

Two- and three-dimensional interactives fill a Victorian-era ramshackle home, where visitors travel from room to room and learn about various poisonous plants that may be lurking in their homes and backyards. History, medicine, science, legend and lore are brought together to present a treasure trove of bloodcurdling botany.
