The Visible Hive

Did you know that as well as the almighty Queen Bee, there are also worker and drone bees? And that all worker bees are female!

The Visible Hive has been designed in collaboration with CIBER to give unique insight in to the buzz-y lives of a hive of hard working bees.

Using specialised valve systems and a long tunnel to the outside world, watch the bees fly out on their quest for pollinating plants and return to make liquid gold, otherwise known as honey.

Discover how honey is made, how they communicate and reproduce, and what research is being done into the fascinating world of bees with the visual display behind the hive.
