Insect Night at the Museum

Join us to celebrate the diversity of life, both big and small, as we unveil part of our new insect collection along with some old favorites!

Kid's Activity - Build a bug in our kid's activity room!

Specimen Preparation - As always, our Collections Manager will be turning dead animals into museum specimens. You can ask questions and get hands-on with his dissections and preparations. 

Visiting Experts - Students in the Bee Club at the University of Puget Sound will be at the event, talking about how they care for the bees and who knows - maybe they'll teach you how to dance like a bee!

Live Animals - Meet some invertebrates from the Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium.

This is a free, family-friendly, drop-in event!

Join us March 31st, from 6:00 - 7:30 p.m. at the University of Puget Sound Campus (located at 1500 N Warner St, Tacoma, WA 98416) in Thompson Hall room 295. Please find directions to Thompson Hall here
