Face your fears or feed your fascination when thousands of specimens, dead and alive, are put on display for one day only.  See bugs that eat plants, plants that eat bugs, or eat a bug yourself!  Bunches of buggy fun for the entire family!

Special this year… puppet show performances of The Secret Life of Bugs by Spyglass Theater! Step through the magnifying glass of blacklight puppetry into a world of Dragonflies and Dung Beetles!  Join Ananse the Spider in discovering the secrets of orb weaving, nesting, and metamorphosis with puppet show performances throughout the day.

Spyglass Theater performances are reservation-only.  Puppet shows are free with admission to the museum. Reserve your space now:
