"Entomica is a fantastic insectarium, the staff are extremely knowledgeable and fun! I feel that the experience is invaluable to the students and I plan on bringing my school groups back every year."

Elisa Muto


"The staff were friendly, patient, and awesome with the kids. It was an excellent experience and I will definitely recommend Buggy Birthdays to others!"

Barb Francisco

"The dedication and love for insect life coupled with the interactive displays and the heart-stopping chance to hold the insects turned this attraction into an unforgettable adventure! Shout out to Chris and his dream team working to educate the world about the critters they love the most. The insectarium was my favorite stop on a cross-Canada tour!"

Amy Lee

"Incredible place to see and hold insects. Was great for my toddler! The staff are all friendly and fantastic and truly interested in what they do! We got to hold Willy Wonka, the chameleon and it made my day!"

Bryony Burrows

"Such a fun experience! Staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. They gave the kids tons of cool facts about each creature as well as interactive part of being able to hold so many of them. The kids loved it!"

Christina Williams


"My girls [11, 10 and 3] all love visiting the bugs. If it wasn't for Entomica and the staff there my girls would still be terrified of every bug ever lol. Staff is always there to answer questions and help with handling the bugs. They're engaging and share a lot of information. Hands down one of the best places to take kids in the Sault!"

Natasha Swift

"Absolutely amazing, the staff are so incredibly friendly and eager to share the knowledge they have about all the species there. I highly recommend it. We came from out of town and must say it was worth the drive. I learnt so much."

Belisle Sylvie

"Amazing place for anyone interested in insects, the staff is very knowledgeable and patient with children."

Pisica Vesela

"These people love insects and that love is contagious! I happily held a praying mantis when I never thought I'd do that! They were excellent with our kids and the kids were thrilled to be there too, despite their initial hesitation.
I'm from out of town, but I wish I could go back. If you get the chance, go for sure!"

Jill Forbes

"WONDERFUL experience. Extremely knowledgeable staff. So neat to be able to hold the bugs!"
