Experience Xtreme BUGS!

Xtreme BUGS! is a journey through the larger-than-life world of giant insects. These innovative exhibitions for indoor and outdoor venues showcase the most bizarre and fascinating aspects of the insect world.

Xtreme Science. Xtreme Stories.

Why do ladybugs congregate in winter? How often do cicadas hatch? What causes insects to swarm? How far do monarch butterflies travel in their lifetime?

The experiences offer an up-close look at the intricate physical structures of insects and provide insight into the amazing features and characteristics of these tiny creatures. The science behind their mind-boggling behaviors will engage, surprise and educate guests of all ages.

From a fluttering oversized monarch butterfly to a gigantic Madagascar hissing cockroach, the exaggerated size of these creatures shines a creative spotlight on what makes them “extreme”. This innovative exhibition captures the most unusual and interesting aspects of the insect world in a comprehensive blend of technology, science and imagination. Complemented by the use of scenic displays, interpretive content and interactive activities, Xtreme BUGS comes alive.

Xtreme BUGS! has been in the following venues:

  • Brookfield Zoo, Brookfield, Illinois
  • Bishop Museum, Honolulu, Hawaii
  • Lawrence Hall of Science
  • Kansas City Union Station

“A big hit…the huge insects are realistic and compelling. Xtreme BUGS was easy to market and provided great PR for the museum. The exhibition enjoyed a successful opening and kept drawing the crowds to the end of its run.“
