(LA Trend) — The Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County is proud to welcome the public to their seasonal Spider Pavilion where guests can walk among spectacular spiders and their wonderful webs in this unique, open-air experience.
The spiders on display are out in the open, with the exception of their scariest ones which are in enclosed habitats, which means you can get a glimpse of several hundred of these fragile and shy creatures and their private lives in their natural environments.
Guests will marvel at the spiders’ elaborate and intricate webs, like those of the garden spider, which can range up to three meters in diameter, along with other feats of arachnid engineering like cone-shaped funnel webs and webs woven into golden silk. Knowledgeable Gallery Interpreters will be available to answer questions and provide insights on the natural pest control that spiders provide. There will also be opportunities to observe the enclosed habitats of tarantulas, wolf spiders, and jumping spiders.
The Spider Pavilion, which is only open in the fall, is a gorgeous, sunny garden with winding pathways located just outside of the Natural History Museum building. Reservations are required to visit, but admission also includes access to the nature gardens (the only portion of the museum that’s currently open).
Guests are required to wear face coverings, and many paths will be one-way to ensure proper social distancing.
