  • We went the day before New Years Eve and we got there at the right time because nobody but 2 other people were there. It was really neat to see all the different insects and spiders. They had a really cute kitchen set up that were actually insect cats it shows were you can find the different types of bugs in your kitchen. The kids really loved it! There are some neat interactive displays as well. It's not the biggest place but worth the $3 per person, kids 3 and under are free.
  • Kids 2,4,6 had a great time observing all the insects and we did too! Person working was very attentive and friendly. Really liked the Atlas and Hercules beetles and the ants cutting up leaves and transporting them around. Would definitely visit again. $3/person 3yrs and up.
