Children under 2 years old are free. Play in a giant man-made spider web, or meet and interact with exotic live insects such as metallic gold beetles or whiptail scorpions.
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.
