Monster Insects and Dinosaur Planet

Anatoly Medved/TASS
Two rather creepy amusement shows have been opened at the Alexandrovsky Park, but there is no doubting the fact that children love them. In the wings of Baltiysky Dom Theatre, a nondescript staircase leads to the third floor where you will find a beetle, a scorpion, a praying mantis, an ant and a spider, all the size of an elephant. They click their jaws, move their antennae and twitch their legs. There are several simple interactive exhibits and a real beetle collection on the walls. On the third floor of the Planetarium, you will find Dinosaur Planet. A new tour (free) begins every 30 minutes, and the groups approach the pterodactyl just as a baby pterodactyl hatches from its egg!
