Discover the hidden world of tiny organisms – those too big, too small, too fast, too slow and too far away in space and time to see and hear – at the brand new Invisible Worlds exhibition at the Eden Project in Cornwall!

There’s an unseen and untold world to discover, where every inch of soil and every drop of water teems with life.

Opening 25 May, explore the wacky and the wonderful, the small to the vast; from zombie ants to minibeasts that can survive a vacuum!

Small things make a big difference…

Standby for a few surprises in store from the gigantic ceramic sculpture celebrating one of the world’s smallest but most important organisms!

Explore incredible interactive exhibits that will transport you through 4.5 billion years of evolution and enjoy amazing artworks, awesome experiments and exciting events.
