Opt for baby carriers or umbrella strollers

The use of a baby carrier or umbrella stroller is recommended to ease visitor circulation along Insectarium pathways. The unidirectional circuit includes some narrow, cramped pathways that may not be suitable for people suffering from claustrophobia, but is easily accessible for everyone.
