Arthropods: Creatures That Rule is a popular gallery in the Harvard Museum of Natural History that draws on Harvard research to explore arthropods’ extraordinary evolutionary success.

It features a wide array of preserved creatures and live specimens, such as the rose tarantula.

Ants and Termites: Nature’s Super Organisms is a new addition to the gallery.

These extremely social superorganisms are one of the most ancient insect groups.

They inhabit every continent, save Antarctica, and live in complex societies, working together as one unified force to survive and even dominate our natural world.

Visitors can also weave their way through the gallery to discover Orb-Weavers: Masters of the Spider World, an exhibit examining the evolution of the orb web, and The Rockefeller Beetles, a small exhibit featuring hundreds of jewel-like beetle specimens collected by David Rockefeller.

Regular museum admission rates apply.
