Melbourne Museum will host the Australian premiere of Bug Lab: Little Bugs, Super Powers – an immersive exhibition experience as told by a collection of insects from 23 June – 15 October 2017.



This is an opportunity for museum visitors to get unique look into the world of bugs, guided through the 'Bug Lab' featuring four immersive chambers and six extraordinary bugs, including:

the Orchid Mantis, an insect which hunts prey disguised as a beautiful flower

the Bombardier Beetle with its incredible ability to defend by firing a near-boiling spray at aggressors

and the Jewel Wasp which can use its venom to paralyse and control its prey.

Bug Lab is a creative collaboration between Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa in Wellington, New Zealand, and Weta Workshop, allowing visitors to marvel at ultra-detailed large-scale models of bugs, discover cutting-edge science and explore the world as bugs do, through immersive sensory experiences.
