What's Happening at Eureka: Pick Your Poison?

For 2018, guests will explore our toxic topic as they discover the difference between venom and poison, come face-to-face with some of the safer relatives of some of Earth's most dangerous inhabitants, and explore the dangers of cultures from around the world as you view artifacts ranging from poisoned darts to tools used to extract poison from plants!
