8-Leg Adventure

Pop-Up Exhibit


Saturday, June 9, 10:00 AM-3:00 PM
Regular admission rates apply

Explore the creepy, crawly world of spiders at this remarkable interactive pop-up exhibit.  Eight-Leg Adventure will teach you all about spiders and their arachnid relatives using fun hands-on activities. If you complete our adventure, which includes encounters with live animals, fun videos of spiders making outrageous dances, and your chance to both sense the world like a spider and even eat like a spider, you could even come away with some awesome eight-legged prizes.

Thanks to support from the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks, and Tourism’s Chickadee Checkoff Program for making this event possible.
