The Insectarium

Located in the northeast section of the city, the Insectarium is a guaranteed gross-out experience — in a good way! Creepy crawly exhibitions include thousands of live and mounted insects, tons of interactive displays, a movie room and the horror movie-esque Roach Kitchen; a life size room crawling with swarms of the icky pests. A seven foot plexiglas wall is still too close for comfort. Hands-on displays let fearless children tickle a live Madagascar hissing roach which shoots out air when danger is near. You’ll understand how he feels.
