Opens 20 December!

Featuring massive 3-D bug models within four magical chambers, Bug Lab is a spectacularly immersive and interactive experience for all ages that offers visitors the unique opportunity to learn from the genius of bugs.

Enter the ‘operating theatre’ of the iridescent jewel wasp and witness her turn a cockroach into a zombie – to feed the kids of course.

Help the Japanese honeybees defeat the giant hornet, their greatest enemy. Test yourself against the bugs with games of skill – can you beat the orchid mantis’s lightning-fast reflexes?

Every bug has a secret, and your goal is to discover it. Precision flight, mind control, swarm intelligence... bugs did it all first, and they’re still doing it better. What would the future look like if humans could match their brilliance?
