  • I'm so glad I came here! It's apparent somebody (two people) took a lot of time to decorate this place. The stories that accompany the exhibits are educational, inspiring, and even heartwarming at times. It's not entirely about insects - it's about the passions of two people (and that extends beyond insects).
  • Wonderful private collection of dead insects, fossils, & rocks/minerals. Very insightful corner about all things mosquito-related. One can see personal touch everywhere here. Too bad there's no section for ants/termites.
