Since 2014, Entomica has made it our mission to share the fascinating, hidden, and often misunderstood world of insects.
We believe that insects possess an outstanding ability to create a spark of curiosity that will lead to a passion for lifelong learning and discovery. Entomica showcases insects to our visitors and uses their fantastic forms and diversity to provide inspiring and educational experiences. Our focus is on personal interaction, and hands on experience for deeper learning.
AWARD WINNING FUN!

Entomica – located in the Mill Market – is a place where visitors of every age and background can have a unique hands on experience. Guests will be guided by helpful and knowledgeable staff, whose enthusiasm and love of insects is palpable!
We are the first insectarium in Canada that has been federally approved to move our exotic insects outside of our secure location. As such, we are able to bring a piece of Entomica to you and can deliver an interactive, hands-on program at your location. Entomica draws upon the strengths of the surrounding communities to catalyze partnerships that promote community engagement with scientific endeavors and conservation efforts in the region.
