Get curious and explore with your whole family!

The Missoula Butterfly House & Insectarium firmly believes that learning doesn’t end just because you don’t spend most of your day in a formal classroom anymore. Yes kids, the adults in your life love learning new things too! Towards that end MBHI will be hosting a series of family learning events where intergenerational groups can explore, play, and learn together.

Family Field Trips

Family Field trips are programs where families are able to complete an open-ended, bug-themed challenge or activity together. After a brief introduction family teams will be given the freedom to complete the programs’ challenge.

Curious Creatures

Curious Creatures is a family learning experience specifically designed to foster curiosity about the world of arthropods. Families will work together in teams to complete a fun and creative challenge to explore the day’s theme. In addition to completing the activity challenge, families will be able to hold our Bug Ambassadors and ask plenty of questions. While similar to our Family Field Trips, Curious Creatures programs are longer and more structured with more station activities to choose from, a reflection activity to close out the experience, and post-program resources and interactions.
