Today: 9:00 AM - 6:00 PM
Let’s celebrate summer with a grand day of play and fun. Throughout the museum, you’ll discover a hive of activity as we explore our favorite backyard friends—insects! Bees, butterflies, and beetles will take center stage in special stations dedicated to art, reading, and science. Create your own exoskeleton. Build a bee hotel. Try a tasty insect treat. And see if you have what it takes for the Insect Olympics. Balloon artist Jenna with a Twist and our friends from Alamo Juggling Club will also be joining us!
Bug Balloons and Edible Insects
Step right up for a tasty treat or an inflated insect from Jenna with a twist!
Create your own Beetle, Butterfly, or Bee exoskeleton - what bug will you be?
Create a safe space for our stingless local pollinator friends, Mason Bees, to lay their eggs, helping pollination for seasons to come.
See if you have what it takes to medal in Insect Olympics events like dung rolling races and more!
Our friends from Alamo Juggling Club will also be joining us!
All activities are from 10 AM – 4 PM and free with admission. See you there!
