The KSU Insect Zoo is for those people who have some level of interest in insects. They may love them or hate them or just have some level of fascination. It is a relatively small museum; however, insects are, themselves, small; therefore, it doesn't take...More

Spend about 1 hour here with two 7 year olds and a 3 year old. Friendly staff. Very small building but, lots packed inside! Priced very reasonably. Enjoyed touching a tarantula and a cockroach.

This is a fun and unique experience for the whole family. Who knew an insect zoo could offer so much in such a small space? Doesn't cost a bundle and the staff is always willing to share their knowledge.

I visited this insect zoo with my mom. It costs $2 per person to get inside. I loved all the insects they had and there was even a couple of touchable ones (if you're that brave).

Thanks for the great review! It is currently $2 a person to visit for active military and their guests, everyone else is $3. I am glad that you enjoyed our "creepy crawly's" and I hope you are able to return again.
