LOTS & LOTS of Insects in NOLA

Ever been to an insectarium? It’s like an insect museum…many dead, many alive. A great place to take your kids when they are in that “insect stage”, personally, I just love the science of it and really enjoyed my visit. I’ve never been to any place like it, there are all kinds of insects, even species that I’ve never even seen or heard of. Here is just a tiny sample of my photo selection…there were just too many to take photos of all of them!

Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium, located in the U.S. Custom House on Canal Street, encourages you to use all five senses as you explore North America’s largest museum devoted to insects and their relatives. You’ll discover why insects are the building blocks of all life on our planet and along the way, you’ll be shrunk to bug size; wander through a mysterious Louisiana swamp; join the active audience of an awards show for bugs, by bugs; and be captivated by thousands of butterflies in an Asian garden. Voted “A top museum for you and your kids” by CNN.com, 2009. ~audubonnatureinstitute.org
