  • The K-STATE insect zoo is one of a kind in the Midwest. It houses several different live insect exhibits and plenty of preserved insects as well. It even has a replica of a prehistoric dragonfly wing found locally! The zoo staff are attentive, nice and knowledgeable.
  • So much fun to be had. A lot of really cool bugs and so much information available. And the people who work here know so much. Definitely will be back plenty of times.
