Health Museum Info

This is another good list to get on. Look at all the upcoming activities!

I went there this weekend. This museum is very kid friendly! You can do the whole museum in a couple of hours. They had some special presentations happening every half an hour/hour in the auditorium.

Giant Bugs Take Over the Museum
The invasion has begun!  Backyard Monsters: The World of Insects is on display now through May 9. Take a tour through what you've been stepping on in your own backyard and see giant animatronic insects move and make the chirping, clicking noises bugs make. The 8-foot tall robotic insects include a tarantula, a wasp, beetles, a caterpillar and a big, beautiful monarch butterfly. But don't worry, they don't bite!

See hundreds of insect specimens, drive a robotic bug and learn how antennae work and why crickets chirp.
