Arachnids? Yes please!

//16/04/04

The Museo de la Ciencia in Valladolid has brought together more than 50 different arachnids from around the world! Visitors can discover the fascinating world of spiders and scorpions and get up close to specimens from Africa, Asia and America.

 
One in ten people suffer from arachnophobia. This exhibition aims to share knowledge about the biology of arachnids, create curiosity about their environments, and to change the negative perception we often have of them. In other cultures arachnids are considered divine creatures and are symbols of good luck. The exhibition will also emphasise the important role arachnids play in controlling the number of insects that can cause damage and plagues. 

Arachnids? Yes please! includes the world’s biggest and most venomous spiders. The beautiful Mexican redknee tarantula also makes an appearance, along with the world’s biggest scorpion. Visitors can film and photograph the arachnids up close and occasionally, under supervision, will even be able to touch them! The exhibition will be open until 17 July 2016 and you can plan your visit here
