An astounding collection of creepy crawlies await discovery at Newfoundland Insectarium, an award winning attraction based in a carefully restored historic building. Founded in 1998, the attraction houses thousands of living and mounted insects, and arachnids and arthropods from all around the world. Revel in this rare opportunity to see so many mesmerising creatures up close, and delight in a stroll through the the largest butterfly house in eastern North America. Divided into six geographical zones, the insectarium teaches you about hundreds of different species and their life cycles, from how bees make honey to the industrious social structure of the leaf cutter ant colony. A quirky colorful gift shop supplies you with endless insect themed souvenirs to take home.

  • We are a family of 3 (with a 12 y.o.) and we all loved the insectarium! We spent approx 1 hour there and really enjoyed seeing the bees and aunts work. The butterfly section was also very nice...

  • Butterflies and bugs from all over the world
  • The instectatrium is a fantastic way to spend the afternoon, especially if you visit their Butterfly Pavilion. I recommend wearing bright colors for this. Staff are available to answer questions about the insects and are very friendly and approachable. Overall, it's a quality location and activity for people of all ages.
