Step into the world of bugs at the Melbourne Museum’s amazing Bug Lab exhibition, but you’ll have to be quick as it closes soon! We sent the tribe behind Bizee_Kidz to check out the creepy crawly fun and spoiler alert – it won’t disappoint.
I took my 3.5 and 1.5 year old on the weekend to Melbourne Museum to see Bug Lab finally. Although a small space, we stayed for about 2 hours, and they could have quite easily stayed longer.
The exhibition is fully interactive with 6 domes placed around the space, enticing visitors to enter the world of certain super bugs. Inside the domes are large scale bug replicas that are amazingly lifelike. Each dome teaches the visitor about this bugs super powers but even if that is lost on your little ones, it surely is a visual feast. The lighting and effects are incredible, which with the music playing over the speakers adds to the mystery and excitement of the exhibition.
Outside the domes there are various stations with activities that children of all ages can participate in, such as drawing bugs to display on a wall, making origami bugs and testing their flying power in a wind tunnel and trying to stab a bug in the brains with a pretend antler.
This exhibition is a great one for the whole family to check out and is good for kids of all ages.
Bug Lab: Little Bugs, Super Powers is a creative collaboration between Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa in Wellington, New Zealand, and five time Academy Award-winning studio, Weta Workshop.
Be sure to check out the creepy crawly fun of Bug Lab at Melbourne Museum before it moves on after October 15. Our tribe loved it!
