About Spiders - Alive & Deadly Exhibition

Spiders are awesome - they can spin webs, climb, swim, dance, parachute and they can even drop a limb when threatened and grow it back.

You can visit the Venom Lab to see talks and feeding demonstrations and live invertebrate venom milking, enter a cave crawling with spiders, test your strength against spider silk and dare yourself to try other creepy crawly immersive experiences.
