Hollywood films and media are giving arachnids a bad rap, but this exhibit hopes to break down barriers between humans and their fears.

The arachnid collection includes 100 spiders and other creepy, crawly things like ticks, mites, and scorpions. The purpose of the traveling showcase is to teach people how these creatures play a role in literature, art, history and science.

The museum features interactive stations, close up encounters, and art activities. The exhibit hopes to not only show others how these creatures can add value to human life, but how there’s more to them than meets the eye.
