Eco Lab is big on all things ecology! From insect and butterfly specimens, to rocks and minerals, there’s plenty to see. There’s also interactive elements, such as the urban heat island temperature measurement station and the touch-screen water quiz.

But the part that keeps guests buzzing is the observational honeybee hive. Guests get a front-row seat as bees actively collect pollen, make honey and even do the interesting waggle dance. Can you spot the queen?!
