Bugs may have a reputation for being small, scaly and scary but the Nelson Provincial Museum is out to prove that creepy crawlies are actually superheroes in disguise!

Bugs! Our Backyard Heroes is a family-friendly, hands-on educational experience that brings visitors face-to-face with some real live mini-monsters.

The exhibition runs from 28 September until 11 February and explores the secret world of bugs and the vital role they play in our lives without us even realising it! Featuring ‘Eugene’, the giant centipede, and his friends the tree wētā, stick insects, locusts, crickets, cockroaches and Avondale spiders, the exhibition also provides the opportunity for visitors to learn about the different native species of bugs in New Zealand and the sometimes precarious position they hold in the ecosystem due to threats from imported pests and environmental threats.

There are plenty of hands-on activities for youngsters to get involved in, including how to become a citizen scientist and how bugs inspire those on the frontline of technology.

Open daily.
