This was a huge letdown! It was included in our package and my son was excited to go. The insectarium consists of a large open style room with mostly a lot of reading about bugs and their life cycle. There are a few exhibits of actual different bugs in them. This is not really geared for young children. It lacks displays, interactive media and live bugs. It looks old and rundown and dirty. Yes there was lots of information....but you have to read it all....and it goes on and on. Interesting and factual but not for children. Accessing this building was not easy. Nowhere in advance did I read that there was construction and routes had detours. Our path consisted of deep puddles and ice/snow covered walkways up a steepish hill. At one point we weren't sure if we were going the right way. Had never been here before, there was no one obviously visible to ask and the signage was poor. We needed up with very wet and cold feet. I would not return here, recommend it or pay an actual fee to just see this exhibit.
