Scientists estimate there are 900,000 different kinds of insects in the world, but only the top five or six rarest bugs are ever featured on Entertainment Tonight. Get up close to the stars of the insect world with this Groupon.

The Deal

The guest of honor and party guests will traipse throughout the museum, guided by a museum educator who can handle any bug-related question the kids ask. The party also includes time in the museum’s Buggy Party Room. Add-ons such as crafts and grab bags (not included in this Groupon) also available, and each additional person beyond the first 10 costs $8 apiece. Parties are usually held on Saturdays or on weekday afternoons.


For every human, there are at least 200 million individual insects crawling, flying, and burrowing on the planet. Several thousand of the world’s six-legged rulers make their home at the Insectarium, a huge interactive museum dedicated to these fascinating arthropods. The three-floor museum includes exhibits ranging from live exotic insects and thriving colonies to movie rooms and a man-made spider web playground. Visitors can meet a 12-inch walking stick insect or watch the light glimmer off a metallic gold beetle. Observe the social structure of a functioning beehive and gain an understanding of the pint-sized politics of pheromones as they catalogue which bees the queen deigns to have tea with. Museum attendees can kick back for hour-long travelling shows, which bring insects from distant lands to interact with kids.
