Entomica is an insect-based science centre and natural history museum 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!

This includes procuring new insects, keeping our insects fed and healthy and paying our highly qualified and valuable staff.


A charitable tax-receipt will be issued for all donations. Donations can be made through our secure Canada Helps donation site. Just click the Donate Today button and you will be redirected to the site.


While we do receive government grant funding for specific short term projects, we do not receive municipal, provincial, or federal funding to support our day to day operations.
