Backbones are overrated -- meet all of our invertebrate friends at this annual celebration of bugs! Stop by the bug zoo to interact with live critters, both native and exotic species. Nerd out with our entomologist, and learn how to pin an insect specimen with our museum collections staff. Test your mettle by eating some delicious bug cooking, go on a guided bug walk around the Museum, and get your face painted with your favorite bug.

All ages are welcome – this event is fun for adults, kids, and teens! Light refreshments will be served, beer available for purchase.
