This is a great little museum to bring the kids. Stick around for the touch part of the museum tour.
not too many live animals/bugs, but my son found it interesting. We were out of there in an hour or so
We visited Insectropolis twice recently. The first time was with our grandchildren, ages 5 and 7 1/2. The second time with our 11 1/2 year old grandson. It was enjoyed by all. The grandsons touched some of the insects. I touched them all. They also enjoyed the bee and ants exhibit. Overall, a fun learning experience.
Our sons loved it. They offer a chance to touch some of the creepy crawlers. My boys and husband loved it, I just sat on the inside. It was set up well, creatively done. We would go back again. If I lived closer we would want a birthday party there.

Took my grandkids in October 2012. There was a really good lecture with hands on different spiders, etc. Staff very friendly and knowledgeable. The displays were extensive and the interactive educational computers with games were REALLY fun! My grandson want tp have his birthday party there this year!
This was a great museum! Great collection! very good price and worth the money! The guy that gives the touch presentation was great!
This is a wonderful place to take your children, especially those little boys who love bugs! We recently had my son's 6th birthday there and what a hit. The kids loved seeing and petting all the bugs. The termite tubes were another favorite attraction. The guided tour that they give for parties and field trips is excellent. Their guides are... More
