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!
