The exhibition with a sting in its tail!
The snakes, lizards, frogs, spiders, insects and other venomous creatures in the POISON exhibition are live and spread throughout more than twenty terrariums. A trained specialist looks after their health. With a bit of luck you can even observe him working (through the window of our secure laboratory)!
For the welfare of the animals, during your visit please try to move slowly, don’t knock on the tanks and make as little noise as possible: (sound) vibrations disturb them and could make them hide away in a corner where you will not be able to see them.

Lots of visitors for POISON: be prepared!
For safety reasons and for the comfort of the visitors, access to the exhibition POISON is limited. During weekends and school holidays the afternoon block is usually quickly overbooked. Therefore, we suggest you to come in the morning or to come and buy your ticket in advance at the ticket desk (mention day and preferred time of visit - not possible for the free first Wednesday of the month from 13.00).
For groups (+15 individuals) reservation is obligatory, even if it's not a guided tour. You can book your visit via +32 (0)2 627 42 52 (on a weekday from 9.00 to 12.00 and from 13.00 to 16.30)
