What you can expect
Prepare all 5 of your senses as you descend into the world of bugs at North America’s largest museum devoted to insects and their relatives. Venture through informative exhibits that showcase what insects eat, how they live, and the important role they play on our planet.
Explore the ecosystems of vital local wetlands and bayous at the Louisiana Swamp Gallery. In the Underground Gallery, you can creep around like a 6-legged critter among giant-sized animatronic insects, massive earthworms, and other creatures that crawl.
Relax in an Asian-inspired butterfly garden with hundreds of your closest flying friends. You may even have a visitor rest for a moment on your hand before taking off again. Marvel at the colors and patterns on their tiny wings as they float above the bridge and lagoon.
Finally, sit for a spell in the high-definition theater as a film featuring animated insects delights you with multi-sensory surprises.
