In Wicked Plants: The Exhibit, visitors explore a creepy Victorian home and educate themselves through interactive displays about the world's most villainous plants that may be lurking in their own homes and backyards. History, medicine, botany, and legend are brought together to entertain and inform about the health effects to the human body, as well as the amazing evolution of some of Mother Nature's evil doers in the plant world.

Based on author Amy Stewart's best-selling book, Wicked Plants: The Weed That Killed Lincoln's Mother & Other Botanical Atrocities, this fun, educational traveling exhibit takes visitors through the fascinating world of plants, and how their amazing adaptations can be harmful to humans and animals.
