Bugs’ House

Not only bugs – in the lab are present also arthropods – is a fascinating journey on the theme of small exotic animals. Once they were confined to the tropical forests of Asia and South America, today you can easily meet the Science Centre of Città della Scienza.

The real important thing is that for decades have been bred in captivity turning into “special” pets. Some  of them are able to sting or bite and must therefore be handled with care.

Nevertheless, in the laboratory of Città della Scienza you can meet them, know them better and learn the adaptive strategies and their biological characteristics. Next to the living arthropods, entomological boxes, a real anthill, the hives of bees, models and a spectacular light microscope allow you to discover the secrets of these small but amazing animals.
