Welcome to Insect Adventure


For those attending September 2nd Open Hours, we are still under construction. There will not be as many bugs and no displays will be present around the room. The admission is free, but no one will be allowed to hold any of the bugs. We are very sorry for any inconveniences caused.

Come and see the live bug petting zoo during OPEN HOURS
every 1st and 3rd Saturday! 


$3 entry fee per person. No credit cards, please.

Looking for an unforgettable and unique educational experience for your youth? Try having an Insect Adventure! The Oklahoma Cooperative Extension has the only live bug petting zoo in the state. This presentation comes with more than 25 species of living arthropods as well as a knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and entertaining professional entomologist to walk you through your arthropod exploration and handling.

The Insect Adventure is a perfect enhancement to curriculum. Do you and your youth have questions that have been "bugging" you about this large, fascinating, and diverse group of animals? Have you dreamed of holding a foot-long millipede, petting a tarantula, or looking into a living honey bee hive? Then now is the time to book your opportunity to visit the Insect Adventure facility on the OSU-Stillwater campus or to schedule bringing the live bug zoo to your school or event.

The Insect Adventure is adaptable to nearly any situation (indoors or out, big or small, 1 hour or 1 day, all ages groups) and we offer an array of entomology presentations and activities.
