Children, adults, experts and skeptics are sure to find something of interest at the Victoria Bug Zoo. With more than 50 species of live bugs, interactive displays and experienced tour guides, the only thing you need to bring is your curiosity.

Rotating exhibits offer new opportunities for first timers and regulars alike to see insects. Tours allow visitors to get as close as comfort allows and take on close-up challenges by choice. With safety as the number-one priority, people can confidently experience insects in a new way.

The zoo features bugs one may never see in the wild, while also giving people an opportunity to see more common insects in a whole new light. From tarantulas to Malaysian jungle nymphs to an impressive ant colony, they have everything you’d expect and more.

The museum’s goal is not merely to be a place for excitement, however. They are serious about combating dangerous misconceptions about the tiny invertebrates with which humans share the planet. Their conservation and display work allow people from all walks of life to create unique and unexpected bonds with some of the most interesting and overlooked species on Earth.
