Te Papa and Weta Workshop bring you a science exhibition like no other - a spectacular, immersive experience ‘designed by bugs, for humans’.

We bugs are some of evolution’s greatest geniuses – the true leaders of this planet.

Your most advanced science has been ours for millions of years. Mind control, swarm intelligence, precision flight… we bugs did it all first. How do you humans really compare?

Enter the ‘operating theatre’ of the iridescent jewel wasp, and witness her turn a cockroach into a zombie - to feed the kids of course. She’s a devoted mum and a killer brain surgeon. Can you match her precision?

Then head to the hive because the bees are under attack. Can you work together to defeat the giant hornet? Be ready to sweat.

And there’s more: aerial acrobatics, looks that kill and explosive action from a beetle’s rear end.
