For the first time in North America, see the world the bugs built at Discovery Place Science.
Experience the immersive world of bugs and their amazing abilities that inspire human innovation.
Larger-than-life bug models are your guides as you journey through hands-on activities and challenges. Enter the ‘operating theatre’ of the iridescent jewel wasp and witness her turn a cockroach into a zombie. Join forces with the Japanese honeybees to help them defeat their greatest enemy, the giant hornet. In a game of skill, try and beat the orchid mantis’s lightning-fast reflexes.
Explore four immersive chambers throughout the exhibition and get up close and personal with four insects and their amazing adaptations.
Bug Lab was created by New Zealand’s world-renowned museum Te Papa, working with five time Academy Award-winning film studio Weta Workshop.
For all ages.
