Gentleman who was a teacher for 30+ was excellent. Spent a good 20 min talking about bees. Very interesting! What an asset he is. I just wish I had teachers like him growing up.

Only decided to call in as we had time to waste before a flight out of Deer Lake - so glad we did, an amazing place! Building is a converted dutch barn and interesting in its own right. The staff including young students were all very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. The butterflies in the pavilion were amazing but so too were the tarantulas etc. on the higher floors, which were taken out of their tanks and shown to and sometimes held by visitors - we learnt so much,

Heading home after a week on the west coast, we decided to take a trip to the insectarium. I'm so glad we did! The butterfly pavillion was amazing! Great, knowledgable staff made this experience all the better!
