Fascinating exhibition with lots of fun, interactive elements.
However, there was practically no mention of poisonous mushrooms whatsoever. That is, apart from two plastic Amanita muscaria in a small basket by Shakespeare’s three witches who were brewing a “flying ointment”. When asked if there were any mushrooms in the show a museum employee identified the two Fly Agarics (Amanita muscaria) as False Morels.
Is the American Museum of Natural History unaware of the Fifth Kingdom?
Shocking and disappointing.
