Spiders

What would you see if you had eight eyes? Would you get a better view of the world around you? Find out in Spiders - a joint exhibition between Questacon - The National Science and Technology Centre and the Australian Museum.

Challenge a peacock spider to a dance-off to find out if you're friend or foe, learn if vegetarian spiders exist and find out what happens when a spider 'balloons' away!

Featuring up to 200 spider specimens including live Australian tarantulas, funnel-webs, redbacks and giant water spiders, get ready to weave your way through the fascinating displays and interactive exhibits.
