Spineless is the first major natural history exhibition at the museum since it reopened in 2009.

Created by the museum’s own team, Spineless showcases specimens from the museum’s extensive natural history collections not currently on display, with live specimens including the world’s heaviest stick insect and largest spider.

With loans from the Natural History Museum in London including the world’s only venomous crustacean.
