We've taken the grand kids a couple times, there's still plenty to learn as adults and kids are always teaching us that!

Spend about 1 hour here with two 7 year olds and a 3 year old. Friendly staff. Very small building but, lots packed inside! Priced very reasonably. Enjoyed touching a tarantula and a cockroach.

This is a fun and unique experience for the whole family. Who knew an insect zoo could offer so much in such a small space? Doesn't cost a bundle and the staff is always willing to share their knowledge.

Very nice staff. Hope to see them again. Their observation hive is going again hopefully strong with the good weather.

I visited this insect zoo with my mom. It costs $2 per person to get inside. I loved all the insects they had and there was even a couple of touchable ones (if you're that brave).

Thanks for the great review! It is currently $2 a person to visit for active military and their guests, everyone else is $3. I am glad that you enjoyed our "creepy crawly's" and I hope you are able to return again.

I took my oldest and dearest friend here when she came to visit from out of town in April. We thought it was lovely even though the gardens were not in bloom yet and under construction. My daughter and I had a silly fun time...More

Small enough to see all in about 30 mins but large enough to generate questions. If you are a bug person, this is for you. If you are on the fence about bugs but like to learn things, this is also for you. If you...More
