Visiting the Museum
Individuals, families, and friends are welcome to visit for free, but donations are always welcome. 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! But please:
If you are part of a group (e.g. scouts, school, retirement community, service club), please learn more about our fee-based tour options.
We recommend that you contact us at least two days before your visit, so that we can best assist you.
