The Fifth Kingdom
Fungi are mostly unseen, hidden in the soil where they work their magic of recycling and providing nutrients to all plants. When they reproduce, however, some produce the unique, sometimes strange fruiting bodies, that we call mushrooms. This exhibit illustrates a selection of the good (edible), the bad (toxic) and the beautiful.
Join us in the BRIT Welcome Center Gallery for this fascinating glimpse at the often overlooked Fifth Kingdom.
