Join the friendly staff at the WA Museum’s Discovery Zone these school holidays as we explore the mysterious world of bugs.
Did you know that an insect’s furry antennae are good for smelling chemicals in the air and help them find food? That their skeletons are on the outside of their body? And that their large eyes help them detect movement and see in the dark?
Take a look in some of our special drawers to discover amazing and unusual insects from the WA Museum’s collection. Our insect experts (called entomologists) have chosen some fun features of insects that can be mixed up so you can build a ‘new species’ to take home. But choose your bug parts carefully…it’s counting on you for its survival!
