Six-Legged Wonders

Come and enjoy an evening of wine, nibbles and insect trivia.

Do you know your lice from your beetles, your wasps from your flies? Test your creepy crawly knowledge, lay your preconceptions aside and be inspired by the smaller creatures in life.

Join us for a special late night opening of the brand new Attenborough Studio. Throughout the evening, you'll have the opportunity to meet our scientists and take a peek at some of the specimens normally tucked away out of sight. While testing your insect know-how, we'll give you an insight into what goes on behind the scenes of the Entomology Department, here at the Natural History Museum.

Help us celebrate the diversity and uniqueness of the insect world. Which group of insects will most impress you? What insect fact will take you by surprise? And how can these diminutive animals help our scientists understand the evolution and biodiversity of the world around us? Join us to find out.
