With their towering spires, dark chambers and labyrinthine tunnels, termite mounds are some of the most impressive natural structures in the world.

But what exactly are termites? What do they do and how are they capable of building such grand structures? Join Museum researcher Joel Woon as we journey inside the termite mound to reveal the secrets of these fascinating structures and the animals that build them.

Suitable for ages 7+

The Museum is closed but our work continues

As a charity we need your help. With our doors closed, we're losing vital income. We're doing everything we can to continue to connect people to nature by bringing the Museum to you through inspiring stories and educational activities. 

So if you could help us with a donation - no matter the size - we'd greatly appreciate it. Thank you.
