The Missoula Insectarium displays 18 aquariums and terrariums with live arthropods, including butterflies, hermit crabs, tarantulas, millipedes and so much more!

Visitors can interact with a docent and get up close and personal with some of our live bug ambassadors. We have over 40 species in our lab. Who will you meet?!

Every Thursday afternoon, from 3:00-5:00, and all day Saturday, look for special animal feedings and additional craft or science activities on our exhibit floor or in our classroom.

Visit our camps, classes, programs and events calendar to see what amazing activities and bug fun we have going on!

Each month at the Insectarium will have a unique theme that inspires who you might meet at the animal encounter cart and guides us as we plan for special events.
