A new travelling exhibition, BC’s Marvellous Mushrooms, created by the Royal BC Museum, explore the scientific and practical uses of mushrooms today, highlighting some of the most fascinating of the 3,400 known species in the province.
BC’s Marvellous Mushrooms encourages visitors to learn more about BC mushrooms and their versality. It introduces a cross-section of different species—some familiar, some bizarre, some delicious and some deadly. Their lives are interwoven with every part of British Columbia ecosystems.
Mushrooms are not only a subject of scientific study but also a source of food, dyes, and medicine; and objects of ceremony and beauty. This exhibition delves into the many facets of these fabulous fungi.
The fungi exhibit will be on display in the museum’s second floor gallery from September 8th until December 9th, 2023.
