Step right up and behold the Devil with Two Heads! Witness scorpions that glow in the dark! Experience the offending stench of the Giant Vinegaroon!

Bizarre, bewildering marvels of the insect world are on display in Dr. Entomo's Palace of Exotic Wonders. Resembling an old-fashioned circus sideshow, this exhibition at theNAT explores the truth, myths, and mysteries surrounding some of nature's most curious creatures—many of them alive and on view.

Don’t miss a special San Diego-only section of Dr. Entomo's Palace of Exotic Wonders that features some of the unusual insects that call San Diego home, straight from the Museum’s own Department of Entomology.

Live bugs on display include: 

  • Madagascan Hissing Cockroaches
  • Zebra Tarantula
  • Emperor Scorpion
  • African Millipedes
  • Giant Mealworms/Darkling Beetles
  • Giant Sonoran Centipede
  • Goliath Bird-Eating Tarantula
    ... and many more!
