From Another Kingdom is the first major exhibition in the UK to focus on the fascinating world of fungi – and it is showing at the National Botanic Garden of Wales on from 19th March 2011 to 28th February 2013. This is a touring exhibition from the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, where it was originally on display in 2010.
This interactive exhibition reveals the intimate details of fungi in a way they have never been shown before, challenging misconceptions and showing how they are vital to the survival of life on earth.
In Norman Foster's Great Glasshouse at the National Botanic Garden of Wales the display space has been transformed into a labyrinth of themed spaces where visitors will come face-to-face with fungal diversity, myths and magic and the role fungi play in eco-systems and recycling.
Highlights include a forest of super-sized toadstools, glow-in-the-dark mushrooms and a version of Russian roulette involving deadly poisonous fungi.
