Temporary exhibition

From venom to drug

The relation between poison and medicine is close. So close that the snake and the staff have become the universal symbol of pharmaceutical drugs.

The special exhibit SNAKE BITE explores the history, culture and scientific interaction between humans and poisonous snakes – and their role in drug development.

The exhibition starts october 15, 2021 until June 30, 2022 

In Cooperation with Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF)
