Be thankful that the live specimens featured here are behind glass. We’re not sure what we’d do if we saw a foot-long Goliath bird-eater roaming around Central Park (lucky for us, it’s native to South America). It’s worth getting over your arachnophobia to discover how the creepy crawlers manufacture silk and benefit the globe by controlling insect populations ($25, seniors and students $19, children 2–12 $14.50, children under 2 free).

Cool exhibit of spiders. You get to see many of them encased. None of them were poisonous. Way too short for the amount you have to pay.
