SPIDERS 15 December 2018 - 28 April 2019 Creeping into MAGNT is an exciting exhibition that will give you an eight-eyed insight into the amazing world of spiders. Opening 15 December, experience the Spiders exhibition at MAGNT featuring fascinating exhibits and interactive displays.  Come face to face with live arachnids including tarantulas, giant water spiders, deadly funnel-webs, and redbacks. Explore all aspects of a spider’s life from jaws, venom and nutrition to their reproduction and growth in different habitats. Have you ever wondered how spiders see the world with multiple eyes? Do they see in colour? How does a spider make silk? And why do peacock spiders dance? Those questions and more will be answered through fully immersive interactive exhibits and talks from the Spiders Zookeeper.

You can ‘hold’ a virtual wolf spider in your hand or maybe you’d prefer to challenge a colourful peacock spider to a dance-off. Bravely step into the web of a net-casting spider to get your photo taken or peer inside a spider using 3D scanning technology. Ideal for all ages. Visit the MAGNT website for more information on the exhibition and Spiders Zookeeper talks.    An exhibition developed by the Australia Museum & Questacon - The National Science and Technology Centre.
