If you're scared of spiders, you probably don't want to visit Stamford Museum and Nature Center this weekend. Unless you want to overcome your fears by confronting them, that is. Tarantulas: Alive and Up Close opens on Saturday, featuring a collection of live, scary-as-hell tarantulas from all over the world, each with its own unique story. Species on display include the largest of its kind, a Goliath Bird Eating tarantula (Oh my!), the rare Green Bottle Blue tarantula and the Indian Ornamental tarantula. Celebrate the opening on Saturday morning with BugFest!, in which you and your kids can explore the forest and pond for local bugs (which are mercifully smaller).
