Meet one of Discovery Place Nature's Beekeepers!
into Insect Alley and check out our live collection.
There are many amazing insects and arthropods on exhibition including the delightful Madagascar hissing cockroach, Dubai cockroaches, Darkling beetles, millipedes and more.
Make sure to catch the video about the life cycle of butterflies. Learn all about how a caterpillar becomes a beautiful butterfly, which is great timing because Butterfly Pavilion is right next door!
It’s bugs galore in Insect Alley. Check out the beautiful murals on the walls, challenge yourself to spy all of the insects camouflaged in the artwork.
You can even become a bug yourself behind the human-sized insect with a place for your head!
