A favorite that the kids (and frankly, Mom and Dad) look forward to on every visit to Victoria. Very close/easy walk from just about anywhere.
The bugs are just amazing -- exotic, weird, alien... And the staff is good at explaining them, although don't expect long conversations with crowds of little tykes waiting their turn to touch/hold some of them.
I could have stayed half the day, but unless it's a movie, our kids' attention span is 1 hr tops. One hour is about the right amount of time for a family with young ones to budget here.
Tip #1: You'll get more out of it if you listen to the two guides give their spiels on each bug.
Tip #2: Be brave, go for the millipede mustache (have the camera ready)!
Every reasonably sized city should have a bug zoo, but since they don't, don't miss this one.
