  • Not your average "museum". More like a retail store front. Lots and lots of bugs encased in glass tanks and some in metal cages. Huge tarantulas and scorpions. There is also an opportunity for guests ...  more »

  • A clear partner in hidden Philadelphia. Discover 3/4 of the living creatures of Mother Earth. #insectariumPHL #STEM
  • For $7 a head I expected a bit more. I did like the live cockroach display. Upstairs was nice when they had a staff members let you hold a bug or 2 but the past 2 times we were there no one around? Maybe I was there at odd times as no other visitors either? However, for the most part my kids enjoyed and have asked many times to go back again. I agree it does need some updating...like many of the buttons they have which turn on lights in the displays did not work.
  • Great place for kids! I took my nephew and he loved it. He was able to hold different insects and there were puzzles and games. The staff was knowledgeable and friendly. Great place.
  • I took my 11 year old grandson and we had a lot of fun. The insects were very interesting and sometimes even creepy, which he enjoyed. Our guide, Miss Ann, was a charmer, she really made the visit. Her interaction with the lizards and bugs was priceless. The place is small but so is the price (especially when on Groupon). It was an interesting hour and a half visit to a not so common place.
