Schedule a tour

Guided Tours are scheduled as appointments outside of our regular hours. These 45 minute to one-hour sessions are led by a member of the Entomology department and involve a lesson with live animal interaction. Guided tours are a great option for classrooms that are looking for a structured lesson for ages 4 and up.  Due to limited space, we limit guided tours to 22 visitors including adults. 

Guided tours must be scheduled at least one week in advance and the cost is $4.00 per person. A minimum of 6 guests or a $24 charge are required for a guided tour and military discount does not apply.    

For the safety and comfort everyone in our small space, all groups of 15 or more must call in advance to schedule their visit. Groups that do not prearrange a visit may not be guaranteed admission, as their numbers may put us over our legal occupancy limit of 49 people.  Most groups are scheduled on Monday from 9:00am-5:00pm and Tuesday - Friday from 9:00am-12:00pm.  Please call ahead to 785-532-BUGS (785-532-2847).

If your group is exempt from sales tax, you must present a copy of your exemption certificate at the time of the sale to receive the tax-exempt price of $3.68 per person.  As stated in Publication KS-1520, Kansas Exemption Certificates, payment must be made by the entity on their checking account or on a credit/debit card issued to the entity.  Acceptance of cash, personal checks, or personal credit/debit cards is not allowed for a tax exempt purchase.
