The exhibition in the “Invertebrates” Hall is located in 15 separate showcases. They are systematically arranged by representatives of the world invertebrate fauna. The numbering of the windows is clockwise, entering from left to right. The exposition is a mix of wet and dry preparations of some rare and characteristic species. Representatives who are very rare or too small to display are represented by photo material. In the hall you can see the complete system of our insect species at family level.
A separate module is the collection of the largest and most interesting insects in the world. The largest beetle (162), moth (112), butterfly, praying mantis (130), stick insect (193), ant (129), hymenopteran (195), dipteran (196) and dragonfly (121).
Some other modules are present:
– The built-in diorama in the middle of the hall, which shows the behavior of some interesting insect species: dung beetles (31), mantis (17, 18), ground beetles (22), etc.
– The living beehive with bees collecting pollen outside the museum through a special hole in the wall.
– The 50-million-old insects in copal module in which visitors can observe ants and other insects.
