We've combined two of our most popular annual events—Bug Blast and Meet the Mammals—into an amazing day of fuzzy, slimy, cuddly and crawly fun! See hundreds of specimens from the entomology and mammal collections, touch live bugs, hear from our experts, solve mysteries in a scavenger hunt, and make art to take home. There will be special guest presenters, face painting, balloon animals and more!

Pre-sale tickets will be available in September 2017. Stay tuned!
