This exhibit all about cicadas, the noisy flying creatures, looks at why the genus Magicicad is called the 17-year cicada—and why they're coming back this spring. It will also let kids in on what the phenomenon looks like and what it has to teach humans. Check out the light sculpture Magicicada Staten Island Variation by artist Brendon Ballengée, a light sculpture set up in the museum's courtyard to attract the bugs and entymologists-in-training. All ages.
