Difficult to detect and definitely undesirable, parasites are those little organisms that keep us awake at night, make us itch during the day and spread disease. 

The Parasites: Life Undercover exhibition delves into the world of these organisms, who fearlessly use humans, animals and flora to feed off and thrive. Let fascination overcome repulsion as you come face to face with a giant mosquito, get up close to more than 50 original parasite specimens and take a look at how a parasite-host relationship works with over 30 displays.

Children can also work with their parent or carer to answer all of the questions on the Parasites path activity trail to get a free sticker and go into the draw to win a family Museum Membership, or 12 months on an existing Membership.

Parasites: Life Undercover was developed by the Museum of Natural History Berlin Germany with support of Bayer HealthCare Animal Health.
