Only In NJ!

If you think you've seen it all, think again! Try something different this weekend by checking out unique museums you won't be able to find anywhere else. Stray away from the usual history and art museums to see something new. Insectropolis, for example, is a museum in Toms River with 12 different exhibits--including the Mud Tube containing soil-dwelling creatures, and the Caterpillar Cafe, among many. What a great way to spark the minds of children!

Bugs like you've never seen before!

Designed like a bug-themed city, you can spend all day making your way through the different exhibits, learning about insects and seeing them in action! Learn about the important roles the play in the environment. You will even get the chance to touch a bug.
