Did you know one out of every four animals on earth is a Beetle? Or that Dragonflies have been on earth for 300 million years? Did you know Fruit Flies were the first living creatures to be sent into space? These are the kind of information you and your kids could learn at the amazing Bug Fair that is coming to Natural History Museum of Los Angeles on May 19 & 20, 2018.
Fly over to the Museum for a weekend full of exhibitors, bug chefs, exciting programs, and vendors and celebrate our winged, multi-legged, squirmy, and bug-eyed friends.
See everything from exotic insect collections to pet tarantulas, from millipedes to centipedes, from bug-related products, like honey and silk, to bug-inspired artwork and jewelry.
Watch Bug Chefs whip up protein-filled snacks and explore the Nature Gardens for the chance to go on bug hunts, get crafty, experience up-close encounters with crawly creatures, and more!
