When you visit the Insectarium, you’ll plunge into an unknown and fascinating universe.
Whatever your age, you’ll be astounded by the incomparable adaptations and surprising behaviour of insects, the champions of nature.

The Montréal Insectarium, which is considered one of the largest insect museums in North America, celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2010. A favourite of children, the museum is home to some 250,000 specimens of living and naturalized insects, an anthill and many other exciting vivariums.

Meet entomologist/facilitators who are passionate about their work and discover the fantastic diversity of these champions of nature. Do you have some extra time on a pretty day? Your young children won’t want to miss our play and discovery area, the BuzzGround.

Welcome to the Montréal Insectarium!
