You’ll discover why insects are the building blocks of all life on our planet in our newest one-of-a-kind attraction. Thousands of live and preserved specimens illustrate the vast diversity of shape, size and color of Earth’s largest group of animals. Within the Insectarium you will shrink to bug size; wander through a mysterious Louisiana swamp; join the active audience of an awards show for bugs; and be captivated by thousands of butterflies in an Asian garden.
