A less frosty (you'd hope) Betty Brinn Children's Museum is bringing back its "Bugs on the Balcony" exhibit this Friday.

The bugs are back: Betty Brinn's "Bugs on the Balcony" exhibit returns


Either to patrons' absolute delight or absolute disgust, Betty Brinn Children's Museum will open its "Bugs on the Balcony" exhibit starting Friday, May 30, and running through the end of September. Returning for the second straight summer, the interactive outdoor exhibit offers kids a chance to learn about the stimulating – and, for some, shiver-inducing – world of insects.

Starting with the exhibit's grand opening from 10 a.m. to noon on Friday, children will be able to see and touch real insects at the Anderson Insect Zoo. And for families who find that a bit too hands-on for their taste, there is also the main exhibit, featuring a six-foot beehive structure, a giant build-a-bug activity and six different play table maze challenges – all of which with the goal of educating kids about their fellow creepy, crawling planet dwellers.

The museum's exhibits are free with regular admission, which is $8 per person, $7 for seniors and free for children less than a year old. For the rest of the summer, the museum is open Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. and on Sundays from noon until 5 p.m.

For more information about the exhibit and the museum, visit the Betty Brinn Children's Museum's website.
