Don't let the outside fool you, if your kid likes creepy crawlies this is the place to go. This is a converted home so the hallways are narrow, with lots of renovated rooms.

Surrounded by both permanent displays and living bugs of all sorts you might get the heebie jeebies but my son loved it. He touched a giant millipede & even ate a dried nacho flavored bug - ew! Their gift shop is tiny but there's a ton of stuff to browse through.

In all a really good trip, but once done I'm not sure that we would do a repeat.
