ROM Spider Lab

Spiders are one of the most remarkable animals on the planet! They spin webs, dance, swim, and even grow back lost limbs. Entangle yourself in the world of spiders when you come face-to-face with nearly 400 amazing live and preserved arachnids in Spiders: Fear & Fascination.

Get up close to the world of arachnids like never before with the ROM Spider Lab. See daily live specimen demonstrations - including venom milking - from our team of expert Spider Wranglers.
