The Harrell House Bug Museum

Insects have always been a passion for Oliver Greer and Wade Harrell, the collaborators behind The Harrell House Bug Museum. Greer has been collecting bugs since he was 10 years old, and his collection of mounted specimens now spans the globe. Harrell's interests lie more in living insects, several of which he takes out for weekly live feedings that aren't for the faint of heart.

  • Size: more than 60 live animals, plus a collection of mounted bugs and creepy crawlies that exceeds 2,400 specimens.
  • Eye Catcher: the Goliath bird-eating tarantula, the largest live spider in the Bug Museum.
  • Permanent Mainstay: a display case containing more than 1,200 moths, beetles, and butterflies gathered from around the globe as well as Greer's home of Santa Fe.
  • Don't Miss: the 24-inch whip spider from Peru and the delicate southern tailed birdwing—one of the rarest butterflies in the world.
  • Special Program: on Wednesdays at 4:30 p.m., visitors can experience a live feeding as Harrell offers crickets and cockroaches to an assortment of tarantulas, scorpions, and centipedes.

The scorpion exhibit was our favorite. It had several tanks and black lights so you could make them glow. Every person got to touch live bugs whenever they were done - so there was no line or waiting. The owner was patient and genuinely enjoyed answering questions and seeing people's reactions. We had a great time. It's small so it's not a full day museum but it's reasonably priced and has a lot to see and touch in an hour or two.
