Meet the Mini Beasts!


21st March 2017

As Easter approaches and temperatures begin to rise, the fascinating world of mini beasts is being unearthed at Dundee Science Centre.

‘Introducing Mini Beasts’ will see a host of family-friendly, creepy crawly activities run from Friday 31 March through to Monday 29 May.

A mini beast show will let visitors meet and find out about a variety of supersized creepy crawlies, such as giant snails, cockroaches and millipedes.  Meanwhile, bee activities for both family and early years audiences will add a real buzz to the show, giving an insight into honey bees and some of the problems facing them.

Calum McAndrew, Exhibition and Community Engagement Officer said, “There are millions of mini beasts and they can be found pretty much everywhere from our back gardens and parks to pavements and beaches.  Their appeal is eternal and it’s fascinating to watch them go about their daily business.  We will be stepping into their world, highlighting why they’re all unique and also so important to the human world.”

All events are included as part of normal admission to Dundee Science Centre.

For more information, visit or telephone 01382 228800.  Dundee Science Centre is open daily from 10am-5pm.
