Welcome to our new website!
UC Davis Bohart Museum of Entomology
Mission Statement: Understanding, documenting & communicating terrestrial arthropod diversity.
Individuals, families, and friends are welcome to visit for free. Our museum is an active work area, so don't be surprised if you see someone sorting insects at a microscope or creating labels on a computer. You are welcome to ask them what they are doing! If you are a group (e.g. scouts, school, retirement community, service club), please learn more about our fee-based tour options.
