Fungi Kingdom

Fungi make us a most unique sector of our planet’s ecosystem. Neither plants nor animals, fungi make up a completely new taxonomic kingdom. What is even more fascinating is their many uses within medicine, healthcare, cooking and many more! This new exhibit will dive in to the world of fungi and highlight some of the more unusual species found on our planet.

Exhibit features

  • Interactive touch-pad with a huge variety of species to explore
