Museo del Hongo is an unconventional museum space dedicated to resignify the Fungi Kingdom. Through the combination of contemporary art practice and scientific research, we design immersive experiences in which a variety of interdisciplinary works are displayed, raising awareness on the ecological relevance of Fungi and encouraging its research by any of its dimensions; biotechnological, aesthetical, gastronomical, medicinal, among many others.
