Entomica is an insect-based science centre located inside the Canadian Bushplane Heritage Centre in Sault Ste Marie, Ontario.  A variety of live exotic insects from around the world are displayed in beautiful living vivariums. 

During our public tours, participants will be introduced to amazing insects by our knowledgeable Bug Wranglers. Hands-on interaction, up close viewing and photographs of the insects are encouraged! Availability of public tours will depend on the availability of staff or qualified volunteers so please be sure to check back here and follow us on social media to get the latest updates!

Entomica is a charitable organization. The bulk of our revenues come from our outreach programs, and donations. Donations to Entomica would be greatly appreciated to help keep our insects fed and healthy. A charitable tax-receipt will be issued for all donations. Donations can be made through our secure square site, just click the Donate Now button and you will be redirected to the site.  

Explore Entomica from the comfort of your home...
