University of Costa Rica Insect Museum


Museums - Art - Culture

Many of the species found in this collection originated right in the diverse eco system of Costa Rica while others came from exotic jungles, swamps and desserts from across the planet by way of international studies and research efforts.

In depth collection of butterflies, beetles, bees and dragonflies with thousands upon thousands of species in all insect species. It is difficult to imagine the roll these insects have played in the environmental impact until you get a real overview of the size and roll they play.

A great educational experience for the whole family.
