About

Find out which animals are venomous, how creatures use their venom, and the ways in which people have used it for their own purposes with Venom: Killer and Cure at Natural History Museum.

Featuring a host of specimens, from snakes and spiders to the duck-billed platypus, this exhibition lets you discover the effects of venom through the eyes of both predator and prey. Gaze at the head of a Gaboon viper, the snake with the world’s largest venom fangs; learn about a flower urchin that can temporarily paralyse a human; and even face your fears by studying a live venomous specimen.

You’ll also uncover some medical marvels, as you find out how venom has been used throughout modern medicine, including treatment for diabetes and impotence.
