  • Excellent place for bug nerds, and all the rest of us! Bring your family and a good camera, release new born butterflies, in the beautiful butterfly garden, hold some giants bugs, and learn a thing a two about taxonomy. Great place for kids, and the staff is very kind and informative! 5 big stars! We spent about 2 hours here.
  • Best part is opportunity to interact with insects. We got to hold some of the stick insects and a scorpion, release some butterflies into the butterfly room. Exhibits are informative but not exhaustive. Great for young school-aged kids. Very friendly and helpful staff.
  • Good fun...nothing out of the normal here. Basic insect zoo. They let you hold a good number of insects and lizards. It was fun! Clean and safe.
  • A small zoo, but you can get really up close and personal with the insects. Not too expensive but the cafe on site is only really drinks. Hold a scorpion, tickle a stick insect, great for kids.
  • The place was really educational and interesting. The staff there were really passionate and friendly as well! Ideal place for insect lovers out there!
