Insects are everywhere, in a mind-blowing diversity of shapes, colours and species.

This brand new exhibition, developed by Queensland Museum, explores the surprising variety of ways insects do good - for the planet and humanity.

From maintaining healthy ecosystems, pollinating our crops, to providing inspiration for new technologies, they are six-legged superheroes.

This exhibition coincides with the centenary celebrations of the Entomological Society of Queensland, Australia’s oldest society devoted to the study of insects.

Get up-close and personal with insects at Queensland Museum.
