Have you ever seen ‘The bugs, beetles and butterflies’ exhibition at Melbourne Museum?
We have very recently seen it again, and I loved it. There are thousands of tiny beetles, almost as many butterflies and hundreds of spooky spiders! In addition to those, there are some ants, leaf insects, stick insects, mosquitoes and some other bugs.
There was a super cool ant show, where you go under the ants floor, and pop your head up into a plastic bump and see ants all around you. Ants can be all around your head, above, at the sides….
I was really shocked to find out that there are poisonous butterflies! Luckily, it can only poison birds and small creatures, but not humans or large animals.
Wondering how to get there? Once you get your tickets and face the forest gallery, turn to your left (or towards the huge whale skeleton) and walk forwards till you reach the dinosaur exhibition (which is on the right). Walk straight down, and keep looking to the right. You’ll soon find yourself next to walls of bugs. Feel free to walk around and find the ants, spiders and everything else there is to discover about this amazing exhibition.
I hope you have fun at the exhibition! Here is a sneak peek:
