Insectaria in Canada

An insectarium is a place in which a collection of living insects and other arthropods is kept, as in a zoo.  Educational displays focus on learning about insects and their habitats, why they are important and the work of scientists (e.g. entomologists, arachnologists) who study them. Check out their websites, and if you are in the area, consider a visit (for some, booking is advised).
