The Power Of Poison Exhibition

For the first time in South Africa you are able to discover the Power of Poison. A few weeks ago I attended the exhibition and it’s got everything from poisons place in nature to the role it has played in shaping human history, healthcare and literature.

The Power of Poison exhibition is presented by industry leader ExpoRSA, whose previous exhibitions include The Art of the Brick, Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition and Dino’s Alive.



Do you know the antidote for spiders, scorpions, poisonous plants and even Snow White’s apple? The exhibition reveals it all! Visitors can also take part in a live presentation about a real-world poisoning case and key advances in toxicology, or the science to detecting poison. 

 What else can you expect?
  • A fascinating historical tour of poison’s place in history
  • Over 200 exhibits
  • A recreation of Snow White’s Apple
  • Poisonous animals, plants and more!
