Florida Museum’s spiders exhibit crawls away Sept. 4
September 4 @ 10:00 am - 4:30 pm
Take an eight-legged walk on the wild side with the Florida Museum of Natural History’s “Spiders Alive!” exhibit before it leaves Sept. 4. This exciting exhibit dives into the world of spiders, scorpions and their relatives with more than a dozen live species from around the world on display. Large touchable models reveal more about spider anatomy and their differences from insects while rare fossils display species from the past, including one that’s 100 million years old. Videos showcase a variety of unique animal behaviors, such as a diving bell spider living underwater and a southern black widow spinning silk. Admission is $8 for adults, $7.50 for Florida residents and $5.50 for ages 3-17. Museum members, children ages 0-2 and UF students with a valid Gator 1 Card receive free admission.
