Backyard Bugs Exhibition Opening Day
September 9 @ 11:30 am - 5:00 pm
Backyard Bugs: An Oklahoma Insect Adventure, an exhibition of the Oklahoma Museum Network, will open in Discovery Lab’s Featured Hall Sunday, September 9th. Inviting guests to learn about the six-legged neighbors that are critical to Oklahoma’s ecosystem, this exhibit brings insects to a larger than life scale.
The exhibit includes an giant animatronic praying mantis and monarch butterfly, more than a dozen varieties of live insects and arachnids including a black widow, scorpions, Madagascar hissing cockroaches, darkling beetles and hornworms, plus hands-on components like a build-a-bug station, DIY firefly flash patterns, a climb-in honeycomb, and more.
