Come visit MSU’s Bug House, where you can see, touch or even hold some real creepy crawlers!
A visit to the Bug House will explain all these fascinating facts and more. In addition to viewing the amazing pinned displays, you’ll have the opportunity to interact with a whole room of insects, including walking sticks and tarantulas!
The Bug House is open for tours made by appointment and for the hours of the events listed below. Due to staff and resource limitations, we are NOT open daily. Tours are offered with an appointment Monday through Friday for all ages in groups of 30 or less. Please schedule at least one week in advance. There is a $50 fee for a 1-hour tour. View our open tour times and make your reservation today by calling 517-355-4662 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Special open house events for the general public are free, but a donation is greatly appreciated. See the events listed below for upcoming dates.
