Little Bugs, Super Powers

Behold the marvels of the invertebrate world as giant bugs take over Melbourne Museum!

Inspired by the secret life of bugs and their genius ways, Bug Lab: Little Bugs, Super Powers immerses audiences of all ages in a journey to zoom in on the world beneath your feet!

Come face-to-face with large-scale critters and hear stories from six unique insects! Meet a Bombardier Beetle; visit the bug labs and see living bug specimens from Museums Victoria's own collection.  Dig deep into cutting-edge science to uncover the adaptive genius of bugs and discover how humans are using bugs as inspiration for new technologies.

Don’t miss this fascinating journey into the world of insects. The Australian premiere event debuts in Melbourne on 23 June 2017, and the exhibition runs for a limited time only. Book your tickets today, and see what all the buzz is about!

Your own little bugs will be buzzing with provided pre-school friendly activity tables and a beetle slide with coloured lights and sound effects!

Not done with little critters? See Bugs: Mighty Micro Monsters 3D in IMAX for $10. In this 3D giant screen adventure, you’ll shrink down and step into the hidden world of super-powered bugs! Buy online with your Bug Lab: Little Bugs, Super Powers tickets. Or present your Bug Lab: Little Bugs, Super Powers ticket at IMAX.

Make a day of it by visiting Melbourne Museum’s Bugs Alive! to see, hear and smell the world of insects, spiders, snails and other invertebrates!

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.
