Take an up-close look at the hidden world of insects in the Florida Museum of Natural History’s new “Science Up Close: Incredible Insects” exhibit, opening May 25. This collaborative endeavor between the Florida Museum and the University of Florida department of entomology and nematology offers a rare look at the most diverse group of animals on the planet. Visitors will have opportunities to encounter live bugs from Florida, view a busy ant colony at work and discover the insects that live among us. Engage one-on-one with entomologists and researchers in the working lab and learn about all they do! Admission is $7 for adults, $6.50 for Florida residents and $4.50 for ages 3 to 17. Museum members, children ages 0 to 2 and UF students with a valid Gator 1 Card receive free admission. For more information or to purchase tickets online, visit
