Insectarium de Montreal displays both live and dead insect collections from all around the world, from giant stick insects and furry spiders to monarch butterflies and jewel-like beetles. The largest insect museum in North America (which from a bird's perspective looks like a stylized insect), is home to nearly 250,000 specimens of living and naturalized insects. Observe busy ants picking leaves and maintaining the nest on an anthill. Learn more about arthropods, and explore shapes and colors of specimens displayed in cases and vivariums. Wander through a prairie to a pond filled with freshwater wildlife in the discovery zone. Kids will like the fun zone with games on the theme of insect habitats.
