Bug Blast says
Bug out as thousands of specimens, dead and alive, fly, buzz, or crawl to the Burke Museum for this favorite annual all-ages event!

Special this year:
Live bug shows with The Bug Chicks! (10:30 am, 12:30 pm, 2:30 pm)
These two scientists take time off from their research to inspire all of us to find our inner “bugdork.” Their presentation showcases the diversity of arthropods, and invites us to touch, hold, and pet the amazing creatures in their Bug Zoo.

Additional Bug Blast activities include:
- Touch live bugs like tarantulas and cockroaches—if you dare!
- See beetles, butterflies and more from the Burke's insect collection that are only viewable at Bug Blast
- Get a bug's eye view with insect eye glasses

Included with museum admission; FREE for Burke members, UW students, staff & faculty with ID.
