The Caterpillar Lab at Discovery Museum
An event every day that begins at 12:00 am, repeating until June 20, 2021
The Caterpillar Lab, located in Marlborough, NH, takes over the Community Gallery of the Discovery Museum and turns it into a mini version of their own lab space! See a huge variety of New England caterpillar species showcased on open-air displays of local plants. Get up close to enormous giant silk moth caterpillars, fierce-looking snake-mimicking caterpillars, convincing twig-mimiking caterpillars, and bubbly butterfly caterpillars. Witness rare moments of metamorphosis and watch ecological relationships play out first-hand under a digital microscope. Chat with the educators from The Caterpillar Lab—you’re sure to discover something new!
Discovery Museum is closed Mondays. Exhibit is included with museum admission. Advance ticket reservations are required at discoveryacton.org.
