You can rewatch past Lates Online events on the Museum's YouTube channel.

Revisit November's venomous Lates

Toxic Tales

Venom hurts, but it can also heal. From fanged and scaly to cute and cuddly, join science communicator Alison Shean and scientists Ronald Jenner, Aida Verdes and Anna Nekaris to discover the surprising variety of venomous animals. Learn how their toxins can be put to ingenious uses, both for them and us.

Quiz: What's Your Poison?

The Prodigy proclaimed to have both the poison and the remedy, while Britney reckons your lips are toxic. Scientifically speaking, both claims seem doubtful. If, unlike these musical superstars, you think you know your poisons from your venoms then sink your teeth into some killer questions with our toxic quiz.

We're open!

Entry to the Museum remains free, but since we closed our doors we've been losing vital income. Donations will help us to continue welcoming visitors and connecting people to nature through inspiring stories and educational activities.

So if you could help us with a donation - no matter the size - we'd greatly appreciate it. Thank you.
