Audubon Insectarium, {CATEGORY}

While many folks try to keep anything that creeps, crawls, or flies out of their lives, the Audubon Insectarium is working to bring visitors eye to eye with the creepy and crawly. Thousands of mounted specimens and live insects make up the collection of interactive exhibits that are housed in the largest freestanding museum of its kind in the United States. Audubon Insectarium exhibits include Butterflies in Flight which provides visitors with an up-close learning experience in a free-flying Japanese Garden style exhibit, Life Underground which shrinks visitors to the size of our six-legged friends with oversized props and animatronic insects, and the Cooking Show and Cultural Cafe which gives everyone the chance to experience the joy of cooking with insects!

Audubon Insectarium, {CATEGORY}

This long-anticipated museum is dedicated to all things bug (okay, and arachnid. Don't get picky), specifically 900,000 species of critters that creep, crawl, and flutter. Located in the old U.S. Customs House, it's the largest free-standing museum in the world dedicated to its multi-legged, winged subjects. Don't like insects? You might well be surprised, this latest addition to the Audubon Group has all the elements of a great adventure: surprise, humor, special effects, beauty, and intrigue, and by the time all that's been applied to the main topic at hand, you might not only find your attitude changed considerably, you may even muster the courage to "pet" an Australian Prickly Stick bug or a giant beetle. Every turn brings something more fascinating than the last. The journey through ickiness (kidding! Bugs are great!) begins in the Prehistoric hallway with insect replicas some 30 inches wide. A gallery that simulates the experience of being underground exposes the tiny world living in our soil. Beetles sparkle like emeralds and sapphires in the "Hall of Fame", while termites tear through a house frame before your very eyes, reminding you to keep your termite contract up-to-date. Don't miss the short, surprise-filled movie. In the Tiny Termite Café each glass-topped table has an insect colony living in it (watch silkworms spin their fibers while you dine). You may even watch a chef prepare some bug delicacies on a TV monitor while you dine, and if that inspires you, there are a few creepy-crawler-based snacks available for your own daring munching. Finally, the Japanese-inspired butterfly gallery, full of living, fluttering beauty, is a peaceful departure from the hustle of Canal Street. Clearly certain kids will love it here, but only the most bug-phobic of any size should skip this incredible facility. And we don't care what they tell us, those ginormous thingies that locals insist on calling palmetto bugs are really just fancy roaches.
