  • 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.
  • Fantastic display. Kept a 3 1/2 yr old fascinated for over an hour. Not creepy or scary. Very informative. Very worth the small per person charge. Free parking. A little hard to find from Google maps but staff was super helpful in giving directions.
  • A great place to see insects of all kinds! Admission was fairly priced and the facility is well-kept by the staff. There were a lot of interesting exhibits and the ant farm was pretty amazing to see!
  • Great for kids! Very knowledgeable and friendly staff. Highly recommend.
  • A lot of cool insects. I just wish they had some butterflies.
