The Secret World of Moths

The Secret World of Moths

The Secret World of Moths is a magical journey to the world of moths. Using 3D X-ray tomography we shed light to their hidden macrocosm and explore their way of life in an unprecedented way.

In our changing world, the study of moths is more important than ever. Lepidoptera are very sensitive to environmental change and being cold-blooded, they serve as excellent indicators of changes in their environment.

Geographically the film spans from the Arctic Circle to the Equator. Observing these two extreme environments helps us learn about and understand the diversity and complexity of their macroscopic world and our fragile existence on planet Earth.

Admittance to this show is restricted to ages 3 and up.

Children under 14 must be accompanied by an adult.

Bring your online confirmation to the Museum Shop to receive your physical tickets. Please arrive 15 minutes before the show to receive your physical tickets and queue; no late admission.
