Bug Day 2013 The Museum of Arts and Sciences hosted Bug Day — an annual event and one of our most popular “Fun Family Days” — on Saturday, June 15, 2013, from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.

Bug Day featured close encounters with many types of bugs and insects from the Museum’s living collection in the Mini-Zoo, plus special bug-related exhibits, and activities.

Highlights during this Bug Day 2013 included:

  • Dr. Jeff Burne, Professional Entomologist, with his amazing bug collection.
  • Steve Nofs, Master Beekeeper, with lots of bee products and a special presentation.
  • David Shoemaker, Junior Entomologist, who shared his expertise during a show entitled “Bugs in My Back Yard.”
  • The ever-popular Amazing Roach Race returned and pitted one hissing cockroach against another in a test of speed and agility.
  • The “Fear Factor Feast” table, which featured chocolate chirp cookies, buggy brittle, millworm presto, and other delectable treats.
  • “Buggy” tattos, crafts, bug raffles, and more…
