    A Bug's World

    A Bug's World
    May 21-September 4, 2016 Monday - Friday 10 a.m to 5 p.m.
    Saturday & Sunday 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. Giant bugs are crawling into Sloan Museum! Trade sizes with an insect to find bugs looming large in this interactive exhibit. Learn about entomology—the study of insects—while exploring common backyard species magnified 40-120 times their size in scientifically accurate animatronic detail. Aspiring entomologists will investigate giant replicas of 5 species: Chinese praying mantis, stick bug, swallowtail butterfly caterpillar, desert locust, and rhinoceros beetle. Watch as the caterpillar edges its way around a massive bug-collecting net and the praying mantis hides and hisses behind a veil of dangling grass. Crawl through a wormhole to see two giant beetles knock horns, battling for territory.
