Heads up, summer is REALLY busy. Other than that, 10/10 experience!!! If you follow along with the tour (is constant and circling around the room so you can jump in/out as you’d like) you can hold certain bugs! The employees are incredibly kind and informative, and even have employee-handmade items in the gift shop! (Which are beautiful btw, I bought some adorable clay slug earrings) If you’re in the area, ABSOLUTELY worth a visit!!!
Very nice bug zoo showcase lots of insects and bugs which we never seen before. They have staff sometime they take out the insects and you can interact with them very nice experience. From visiting here we know how important it is to preserve the environment we living in because those bugs are performing important roles on the ecosystem. Ticket is not very expensive but what you get from it is definitely more than the value of ticket itself for sure.
Bug Zoo is amazing! If you or your kids love bugs - best place to check out! They have bugs I have never seen except on TV! You can hold the bugs which is such an experience! The guide is very knowledge! All staff is very friendly and gift shop is stocked with amazing things for any age!
