“Spiders: From Fear to Fascination’ is a spectacularly appealing exhibit for everyone from the spider timid to professional arachnologists. No other spider exhibit of the last 30 years comes close to the quality of this show. What I love about this exhibit is that it is so active and engaging for visitors of all ages. It combines accessible biology, gorgeous visuals, many live spiders and other arachnids, 400 dried specimens in life-like poses, and interactive games and graphics. Where else do you see families dancing with peacock spiders? No one will leave this exhibit without an ongoing interest in spiders.”
