The museum’s annual Eureka! Sip, Savor, Science fundraiser, held Saturday, March 10, is an upscale party with cocktails and heavy hors d’oeuvres created to support programs at the museum. This year, the theme of the night is Pick Your Poison

Fables about poison, potions and magic from around the world will be uncovered during science experiments performed during the party, to reveal how poison has been used as a weapon for centuries. Boonshoft’s Discovery Zoo crew will even be there to demonstrate the lethality of nature’s venom.
