It was mostly dead bugs that were pinned and displayed in cases. They had some pretty scary looking ones as well as some really beautiful butterflies.
They also had a chalkboard in the back to draw your favorite bug.
There was a wall that was made into a giant series of interconnected ant farms. Zel liked looking closely to see what the ants were doing.
I think the most exciting part for Zel wasn't even a bug though. They had a large tortoise in a pen. Zel loves turtles so he really enjoyed this. We have an Eric Carle book called Around the Farm that plays a specific tune for the turtle since it doesn't make a noise, but Zel thinks that is what turtles say. So every time he sees a turtle he sings the tune...so cute!
There was also a giant caterpillar statue with springy antennae that Zel thought were hilarious.
Do you have any fun bug exhibits in your area?
