12th January 2023 – (Hong Kong) The Hong Kong Space Museum will launch a new dome show, “Nature’s Hidden Kingdom”, at its Space Theatre tomorrow, taking audiences on a quest to find rare and unusual fungi in one of the most ancient temperate rainforests on Earth, that of Tarkine in Tasmania, Australia. It will also explore how fungi might help mega-cities address severe environmental challenges facing by them.
Fungi are almost everywhere. They have a wide range of species, of which most are too tiny to be noticeable. They can be found on people, in people, and in the surroundings. Some of them can be used for healing diseases, but some are poisonous. They have tenacious vitality. Millions species of fungi still exist even though their ancestors had experienced five mass extinctions on Earth.
The 41-minute show will be screened until 30th September. Screening times are 5pm on weekdays and 11am, 3.30pm and 8pm on weekends and public holidays. The Hong Kong Space Museum, located at 10 Salisbury Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon, is closed on Tuesdays (except public holidays).
Tickets priced at $24 (front stalls) and $32 (stalls) are now available at the Hong Kong Space Museum Box Office and URBTIX (www.urbtix.hk). For details of the show, please visit hk.space.museum/en_US/web/spm/shows/dome-show/natures-hidden-kingdom.html, or call 2721 0226 for enquiries.
