Description

Bug Works is about the kind of bugs that creep, crawl and fly and their place and purpose in our ecosystem. Join Sparky and Ocho O’Rider, Bug Works’ Lightning Bug Foreman and his tarantula helper, as they guide you through seven interactive displays and discover why such tiny creatures have such big jobs to do.
Explore bug sounds, life cycles, survival skills, habitats, and why the jobs they do help keep our planet in check. Compare your strength to some of the strongest members of the arthropod world, learn what termites have taught us about architecture and air conditioning, and discover why we might find ourselves in big trouble when certain bug populations rise or fall.
What is the difference between a moth and a butterfly? How large can bugs get? Is that a stick or an insect? Walk through our Bug Hive to learn more about different types of bugs and observe specimens from the Museum’s Entomology Collection, including a selection of its famous Marchand Insect Models.
Bug Works is the fourth of eight interactive science studios the Museum plans to open by October 2015. The Museum’s fifth science studio opens in spring 2014 and will focus on culture and highlight select pieces from the over 700,000 specimens and artifacts in the Museum’s collections.
Entry to Bug Works is included with general museum admission and free for BMS Members.
