Insect festival

Come to our Insect Festival and learn all about bugs – whether you love them or loath them!

We’ll be looking at the role bugs play in a bird’s life as part of our Natural Selection exhibition.

Meet loads of national insect experts and have your bug identified. Explore real wild bugs outside and learn about these incredible creatures through fun activities and demonstrations throughout the museum.

We’ll explain why we have such a collection of bugs, how it is used and how important it is for future research.

We promise you’ll be inspired to love and care for insects by the end of the day!
