A Living Museum


The Insectarium of Victoria has many live invertebrate species on display throughout the centre including numerous spiders, insects, scorpions and other more unusual species not normally seen by the public. Utilising special housing enclosures and open top tables, our staff are able to provide a memorable and informative encounter to our visitors by demonstrating and describing these fascinating animals up close and in safety during your visit.

But not all invertebrates are so easily seen at museums or in the wild. Many are small and can go undetected unless special methods are used to observe them. To help visitors see these tiny examples normally hidden from view, we display a variety of microscopic invertebrate species found in both soils and freshwater using our microscopic cameras and viewing monitors at the centre. This is one of our most fascinating live displays.
