It's All About Insects

It's all about insects at the Lewisburg Children’s Museum! Explore four different stations and bug out on BUGS! Visit the insect museum, and discover real insect specimens; touch and hold live insects from the Susquehanna River; learn how to catch bugs like a real entomologist; and don't miss the real bumblebee nest with worker bees and their queen. It's sure to be un-BEE-lievable! This program is sponsored by Bucknell University's Community Engagement Fund and is free with general admission. Recommended for children of all ages.

Botanical Buddies
Saturday, May 11⋅12:00 – 1:00pm

Join us in our Programming Room as we create a botanical buddy! We'll start by designing a silly face, then finish by adding soil and grass seeds that will grow into some crazy hair! Children will take home their planted buddy to care of and watch as it grows. This program is free with general admission and recommended for children ages 3 and up.

Vision Screenings and Eye Health Safety
