What better way to spend Halloween than in the BUGarium, New Mexico’s biggest live insect exhibit? Boo at the BUGarium celebrates the wonderful world of arthropods with special interactive exhibits:

  • “Worm’s World” will show you and teach about various invertebrates commonly called “worms” such as earthworms, silkworms, hornworms, mealworms, and a special treat we call maggot-roni and cheese…
  • At the “Spider Station” you’ll encounter live tarantulas, black widows, and other eight-legged wonders up close and personal.
  • At the “Build-a-Bug Table” you’ll be able to put together your own “Frankenstein” bug to take home…be careful not to bring it to life!
  • Come in costume for a special treat.
  • Keepers and handlers will be on hand.
