Welcome to the Insectarium! Philadelphia's only all-bug museum, and the largest insect museum in the nation! We have thousands of live and mounted insects, tons of interactive displays, a movie-room, fun stuff for kids, and a whole lot more.

Since 1992 the Insectarium have been educating adults and children alike, right here in Northeast Philadelphia, about the fascinating world of arthropods. Hundreds of thousands of kids have toured our three floors of museum space, seen countless creepy-crawlies, played in our man-made spider web, and had a great time while learning all about insects in a way that is fun and exciting to their active minds.

  • Admission:In order to reserve a tour, you must have at least 15 children in your group. The cost of admission is $7 per person, adult or child over 2.

  • Tours: Our museum offers an exciting tour program that is guaranteed to educate and entertain children of all ages.

    Due to the popularity of our program, reservations are required. Reserve early to get the day and time you want! (If your group is less than 15 people, please feel free to come in unannounced during our regular museum hours. We cannot, however, guarantee a museum educator in this case.)

    Call the Insectarium at 215-335-9500 or email at for more details. Museum tours are generally an hour and a half long. If your group wishes to shop in our museum gift shop, please be aware that this will require extra time, and your driver should be notified.

  • Group Programs: Bring your group of 15 to 180 and we will provide a program given by a museum educator at no additional cost other than regular museum admission! The program will give your group a fun educat ional experience that will be a great start or end to any science curriculum. Our programs are tailored to children three years old to adults. Please call for reservations

    memorable celebration combining
