Through May 15

The Heard Museum presents BUGS,  an exhibit featuring more than twenty-five species of invertebrates including ants, scorpions, mantises and dozens of others from the world of itsy-bitsy, creepy-crawly and sluggy-buggy.

BUGS is truly a “bug zoo” showcasing live arthropods both native and exotic. Staged in Mayan Ruins, this exhibit perfectly highlights the particular influence of bugs on human culture. Whether you love bugs or hate them, you’ll find these creatures fascinating. Investigate what you have heard about the invertebrate world by exploring such creatures as giant beetles, checkered cockroaches and enormous stick insects.  Being spineless has never been so cool!
