Amgueddfa Cymru-National Museum Wales Gallery

A new exhibition at Oriel y Parc Gallery and Visitor Centre will offer you the chance to uncover worms of all shapes and sizes, from the everyday earthworm to the extraordinary bone eating snot flower.

Wriggle: The Wonderful World of Worms, which will be on display at Oriel y Parc until 28 June 2020, will offer the chance to discover the mind-blowing diversity of worms from the collections of Amgueddfa Cymru – National Museum Wales.

Exhibits include a spectacular model of a strawberry spaghetti worm.

Supported by players of the People’s Postcode Lottery, the exhibition invites visitors to walk inside the amazing ‘Wriggloo’ and see life from a worm’s point of view. Wriggle down and explore an earthworm’s habitat and see what animals live alongside them.

As well as offering a chance to unearth information about worms from all over the world, the display will also include species from closer to home such as the tentacled lagoon worm. They have only been recorded in two places in Wales, both of which are in Pembrokeshire.

Going underground: Experience the world from a worm’s view in the Wriggloo.
