A chance to trial lots of different collecting techniques. Lift logs to see what’s living underneath, sieve leaf letter, try your hand at sweep netting and dip a pond net in our very own pond. Experts, including Richard ‘Bug man’ Jones will be on hand to introduce the various techniques and help identify and record species. Afterwards, head behind the scenes of the museum to get a closer look at insect specimens and find out more about bug-based research.

A family event for adults accompanied by children, suitable for ages 7 +.  

Buy tickets online, £4 per participating child, accompanying adults go free.
