5 reviews of Bug world Experience in English
Me and the children loved this day out! On first glances at the Bugworld Experience I was a little shocked by how small it was as I was imagining something more like the Blue Planet Aquarium.But why? I was forgetting that it was homed to bugs not sea creatures!I was particularly impressed by the set up. I found the tours very educational and well explained so the children could easily understand the guide-who was absolutely lovely. The great thing about it was that at the end we all could touch the bugs that was extremely interesting, not to mention nerve racking but my two youngsters loved it! I think the thing that makes BW stand out is that it is a relaxed environment where you can take your time to look around and if you or your children are unsure of something they are not afraid to ask the guide. The Albert Dock has lots of well priced food outlets that are family friendly. We went to What's Cooking next door to BW and it was delicious. In reference to Liverpool Museum it is a fantastic day out but there are many insects that are not featured there like the African Land Snail and the Black Widow Spider(one of the worlds deadliest spiders that you are most definately not allowed to touch). As a family we now love to explore in the garden and when we go on long walks in the countryside which make it really fun and its a nice change for children to be interested in something apart from game boys, Nintendos etc.
The Bugworld Experience is a must for all families!
it was brilliant, I really liked being able to pick up and touch the big bugs like the hissing cockroach and the giant millerpede. The guides told me loads of stuff about them. I also really liked the games, partcularly dungball rally and bug idol
It is a rip off for the money. I went and was very disappointed, there were hardly any bugs, it doesnt last the 90 minutes like they state, don’t waste your money people. As stated before, the liverpool museum is much more interesting, is free, takes up a few hours and has a lot of the same bugs.
overpriced, you can go to the liverpool museum and see these things and more for free. im not surprised they dont put the entry prices on their site, £10 odd to get in and then you have to pay if you want to eat the bugs. The bug lolly pops in the shop are 3.50 each, they also sell insects set in keyrings which is hypocritical if you ask me as they promoting conservation and awareness for these insects.
really not impressed at all and id be surprised if it lasted very long.
Again this is NOT by liverpool airport as it says in the title
Bug world opened on 2nd July 09, It is situated in the Albert dock, just ask someone as the signs are not very good at the moment as it’s very new.
It is wonderful if you are curious about bugs the place it’s self is impressive, although it needs a few more bugs but i am sure that will come in time, The staff were very pleasant and helpful and pleased to talk to you about the bugs. We even got to eat giant ants … yes eat them they cost a £1 each though, expensive little critters, they tasted nutty ! I got to hold a giant millipede he was cool, the whole experience was very different and fascinating.
The price to get in was a bit expensive for a family and lots of people wont be able to afford it, 2 adults and 2 children £30.00.
There is a shop selling gifts in the foyer where you pay.
Yes i did enjoy it and so did the children.
The Bug World Experience will provide a fun day out for everyone. 36 species of bugs, including:
- Interactive games and drones of species to OBSERVE 6 Insect habitats to LEARN about bugs like leaf cutter ants, scorpions and spiders. HOLD some creepy crawlies in the handling section. How about TASTING a bug or two
