Ants crawling along a rope at the bug house

In World Museum’s Bug House you can get closer than you ever dreamed possible to beetles and flies, spiders and scorpions or centipedes and millipedes. The Bug House displays a selection of specimens from the museum's vast research collection alongside real live colonies of leaf cutter ants and bees.

There are also interactive displays and larger-than-life models, including a two-metre animatronic fly and Avril the giant spider, who welcomes visitors from her web on the ceiling!

More bug-related fun!
