About Us

The Insectarium and Butterfly Pavilion, a new science museum in Philadelphia, is a place to learn about the most successful group of animals in the world…insects!

Our displays have something to teach and engage individuals of all ages. And for those too young to read, we have new interactive touch screen games, beautiful artwork, and up-close critter encounters! We are always updating and adding new fun educational exhibits!

Our new exhibits are all designed by entomologists, reviewed by teachers, custom built by our carpenters, and finished by our team of artists.  We take great pride in the accuracy and uniqueness of our displays.  We are continuously making new creations for visitors to explore and enjoy.
