Overview

The kids will bug you to take them to the Philadelphia Insectarium, a fascinating museum that is designed to educate the public about the wonderful world of insects. The goal of the museum is to show the critical role that insects play in the balance of nature, the environment and our economy. There are two floors of live and mounted insects from around the globe, a tank inhabited by glow-in-the-dark scorpions, a working beehive and a live termite colony. The big hit with kids is a glass-enclosed kitchen crawling with thousands of cockroaches.
