Open May 26 – September 3
All summer long, you can see bugs unlike ever before – up to 60 times larger than their normal size! From the 7-foot ladybug to the 33-foot tarantula, you’ll see these bugs in great detail as each is made to look exactly like its smaller counterpart.
General Admission prices
Children 1 and Under – FREE
Children 2-11 – $15
Adults 12-64 – $19
Senior 65+ – $12.50
As you meet our Big Bugs, you’ll also learn the important role each bug plays in nature and how we can all help to protect each species. From pest control and food maker to crop protector and forest recycler, we could not live without these bugs.

I know I look like a monster. But I’m really very shy—I’m happiest by myself in my burrow underground. If you leave spiders alone, we’ll help you out by eating pests.
