Soon You Can Pay $1,400 To Eat Magic Mushrooms

A new installation at Berlin's Museum for Contemporary Art, by Carsten Höller, will soon offer vistiors a chance to pay 1,000 euros to eat shrooms and sleep in a "floating hotel room on a platform shaped like a mushroom."

Boy, what a deal! The Museum told Reuters that Höller's installation offers people the "opportunity to dive into the world of soma" — by drinking a mixture containing fly agaric mushroom and tripping out for the night in the museum. It opens on November 5, and promises to provide plenty of great stories (we hope).

Still, $1,400 to spend a night on shrooms? That's just a tad bit steep, no?
