Halloween 2011: The Spiders, Forget Butterflies

Step into a nightmare of eight-legged freaks, well actually a very nice exhibit that you and your children will enjoy. The Spider Pavilion is back this Sunday September 25th at the Natural History Museum.

Members of the Natural History Museum get preview days 23 and 24th,  though.

Why not be trapped in a small enclosure with many, many spiders? Replacing the Butterfly Pavilion during September-November is the Spider Pavilion with plenty of those creepy crawlers to gawk at. They aren't behind glass, they're moving around. Moving all around you.
