Nature Live

Experience live creatures in this dynamic, buzzing zone.

Go nose to nose with an eye-popping collection of live beetles, honey bees, stick insects, tarantulas, hissing cockroaches and other interesting invertebrates.

Do you have an interesting mineral, fossil or other natural-history object to identify or trade? Bring it to our Nature Trade station on weekends and Thursdays after 5 pm.
