We went here along with the biodome on air miles tickets. The biodome is better but this place is neat too. Amazing variety of small and large insects (mostly not living), nicely displayed.

I must have gone 20 times to the Insectarium with my kids. It is a unique experience. Be careful, it might transform you into a creepy-crawly lover ...

I have to admit that I loved the exhibits, especially the ones with he live insects. My favorite was the leaf cutter ants, followed by some of the walking sticks that you had to search for. Learned a lot.

We enjoyed this place. It was a fun to visit while at Olympic Park and when the weather was cold. It is interesting and worth a look if you are nearby.
