Description:

Squeamish folks, you’ve been warned: creepy crawlers abound at this museum. Kids can hold a cockroach, buy & eat lollipops with real baby scorpions inside and create butterfly or ant craft projects. In between visits with honeybees & Black Widow spiders, families can learn valuable lessons on how insects both help and harm our lives.
