Explore the fascinating world of spiders, one of the most formidable and often feared creatures in Australia at Spiders- The Exhibition. Queensland Museum’s newest exhibition will allow Brisbane families to discover these impressive creatures as they come face to face 200 spider specimens and 12 live species including Sydney Funnel Web, Trapdoor, Hunstman, Redback, and Tarantula spiders

Spiders – The Exhibition will showcase the amazing lives of spiders from their unique diet, morphology and venom to their adaptions, reproduction and growth strategies in different habitats, as well as the chance to enjoy some hands-on fun with interactive displays.

Some of the highlights of the exhibition include the chance to challenge a colourful peacock spider to a dance-off, the opportunity to ‘hold’ a virtual wolf spider in your hand, take a peek into the insides of a spider using 3D scanning technology, see some spider feeding and step into the web of a net-casting spider for a photo. Plus just for Brisbane Kids, there is a dedicated children’s area where kids can become an Arachnologist for a day. 

Spiders – The Exhibition jointly developed by Questacon and Australian Museum, will give visitors a chance to come face-to-face with Australia’s amazing arachnids.
