Want to see some cool bugs up close? Head to this shop in the Lufthansa mall
I don’t know about you, but I will never be that parent who purposely brings bugs into the house. But that doesn’t mean they aren’t cool, because bugs are definitely fun!
In Haidian District, NaturalWorld is a children’s museum/zoo designed to excite and interest children in all kinds of bugs and bugs. It’s basically a petting zoo for insects that most people have only ever seen on the Discovery Channel. We are not talking about cockroaches and centipedes here. At Natural World they have stuff like rhinoceros horned beetles, super shiny beetles that look almost too good to be real, fireflies, butterflies, snakes, iguanas and other things to keep the whole family entertained. puzzled for hours.
The best part of Natural World is how convenient the location is. You can see everything behind a glass plate if you want, but if you’re brave and curious enough, they allow you to pet the bugs and animals on your own.
The guided tours are all in Chinese and the staff explain everything in a child-friendly way for 6 and 7 year olds to understand what it means, children’s vocabulary and not too many hard-to-pronounce scientific words. The point of this place isn’t just to dump information on people, it’s to arouse the curiosity and interest of children (and adults). Although the center is open all day, guided tours take place at 1 p.m., 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. Monday to Friday.
They have lots of kid-friendly activities throughout the place, like a sandpit where kids can dig up giant bugs with their little bare hands. Sounds like a lot of fun or could potentially be one of the most terrifying experiences one could ask for… These hands-on activities will require an additional fee. Each will cost around 50 RMB to participate and is limited to around 30 minutes.
