Come and meet a museum scientist with a passion: for cockroaches.

But why? What is it about these loathed insects that fascinates them? Can cockroaches ever be pretty? And are they really as unclean as we're led to believe?

Join us as we step back in time and discover when cockroaches first evolved and how many different species there are today. Will you be convinced? Will you go away with a new found admiration for these six-legged wonders? Join us to find out.
