Underground den. Insectarium: Largest Bug Museum in U.S.

This awesome attraction has something for everyone.The Insectarium has an amazing display of live insects and butterflies. The underground den is incredible --- the giant fake insects make you feel as if you have been shrunk and are part of the insect world. Everything is clean, and the displays are very impressive.....a must see if you are anywhere in the state. Very family-friendly and fun for all ages.
