The Frost Entomological Museum


The primary objective of the museum is to accumulate and conserve a documented record of the insect fauna of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and other areas.

An insect museum is an information center or "library" where properly preserved and labeled specimens are a permanent source of information on structures, geographical and seasonal variations, habitats, ecology, host-parasite association, and evolutionary trends of insects. The Frost Entomological Museum collections currently represent regional insect biodiversity in the eastern United States.

I used to take the kids to see the "bug" museum. They really enjoyed learning and the exhibits were informative. Unfortunately, the museum closed a few years ago with no re-opening planned. Not sure why, the one exhibition room seemed low maintenance. I guess they didn't want visitors.

The public wing of the museum is closed at the moment, but hopefully will open in the near future. Stay tuned.
