Spiders exhibition is a joint project between the Australian Museum and Questacon – The National Science & Technology Centre. QVMAG is excited to host this hair-raising exhibition in 2018.

This is a face-to-face interactive encounter with over 200 real spider specimens including live Australian Tarantulas, Giant Water Spiders and deadly Funnel-webs and Redbacks.

Questacon-engineered interactives will allow the visitor to engage in full body experiences that involve competing in a mating ritual with a dancing Peacock Spider using Kinect gaming technology; hold a virtual spider in your hand; test the strength of silk; feel web vibrations and experience the jaws of a spider.

This combination of immersion and information showcases the latest science that allows the visitor an up close glimpse into the fascinating world of spiders.

Come face-to-face with some of the world’s most deadly, colourful and fascinating real live spiders and their webs. Get closer than ever to hundreds of immaculately presented dried spider specimens.
