Spiders Every Where


24th April 2018 to 29th of March

Spiders are awesome - they can spin webs, climb, swim, dance, parachute and they can even drop a limb when threatened and grow it back. Found on every continent in the world except Antarctica, spiders are one of nature’s great success stories.

"Spiders will be a once in a lifetime experience, with engaging and fun interactives for all ages," said Museum Manager Julie Baird. "It will amuse, educate, and excite you, whether you're already a fan or you're curious to learn more about these remarkable creatures."

Exhibition highlights:

Explore many facets of spider ecology, from reproduction to their specialised jaws and silk.

Come and see live specimens of some of Australia's most famous spiders. Each spider is housed in its own specialised habitat.

As premier invertebrate hunters, spiders possess amazing senses. Find out how they see and feel the world around them, seeking their prey and mates in a massive world.

Spiders are found everywhere and in far higher quantities than you might expect. Explore spider distribution in Australia and find out what’s in your backyard.

The Spiders exhibition is developed and toured by the Australian Museum
and Questacon – The National Science and Technology Centre.
