Greeted at the door by an enthusiastic host, we were shown some live stick insects and spiders and were able to have one of the big stick insects crawl on us. If you particularly want a stick insect on you, don't wear bug repellent or...More

If you are not a dedicated entomologist, this "museum" is worth a dollar donation and 5 minutes of your time.,

Museum is an interesting way to describe this place!!! If you've visited your local museum you'll probably have seen most of what's here. Key here is that the "museum" is tiny, not much more than a shed, and there is not a butterfly house with...More

This personal collection of moths, butterflies and bugs might seem 'boring', but it really is exciting, even for the non-entomologist.
