We will be CLOSED on Independence Day (Wednesday, July 4th). Regular hours resume Thursday, July 5

THE BUG MUSEUM HAS MOVED! We have moved two doors down inside the DeVargas Center into the old Hasting's space which we are sharing with the Travelers  Market.

The new space is more than TWICE the size of our current space! Oliver Greer has added an additional 2,000 insects on display, and we will adding new live animal exhibits as well as expanding the displays of our existing animals. 

The Harrell House Bug Museum offers a group rate of just $4 for adults and $2 for kids. Your group must be at least 10 people total to qualify for this rate.

. 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. WE REQUEST THAT GROUPS ENTER THROUGH THE MALL INTERIOR ENTRANCE.

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 70 people we recommend scheduling two group visits as it will become too crowded in the Museum.

Small Groups: It is usually more cost effective for groups under 10 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.
