The Harrell House Bug Museum offers a group rate of just $60 that includes admission for groups of around 15-35 (40 max) people (including teachers, group leaders etc.). Your group visit includes a live animal presentation where you will get to touch some of our friendly, harmless bugs! We welcome school field trips, birthday parties, art classes, home-school groups, scouts and more! 

Planning your group visit:

Scheduling your visit: Please call (505) 695-8569 or email info@harrellhouse.com to schedule your visit, with as much advance notice as possible. We can usually accommodate groups on short notice, and even walk-ups, but calling in advance will insure we don't have another group scheduled when you want to visit.

Time of visit: You may schedule your visit any time during our regular operating hours (10-6 Monday through Saturday and 12-5 Sunday) but we highly recommend the middle of the day (12:00-3:00) as this tends to be the time of lowest visitation and you will have more of the museum to yourself.

Parking: DeVargas Center has abundant parking all around the mall, but buses will find it easier to park on the back side of the mall. There is a mall entrance between the Albertson's grocery store and the mall that is accessible from the front and the back. 

Bathrooms: The Bug Museum does not have bathroom facilities, but the mall bathrooms are easily accessible near Office Depot. You may leave the museum to use the bathroom and return at any time, but with groups of children we highly recommend planning bathroom visit before the start of your group visit so you don't have to interrupt your time with the bugs!

Big Groups: For groups larger than 40 people we recommend scheduling two group visits as it will become too crowded in the Museum.

Small Groups: It may be more cost effective for groups under 15 people to just pay our regular entrance fees, especially if the group is mostly children. There may be discounts available in certain situations, so please call (505)695-8569 for more information.
