There are strange, beautiful, and sometimes grotesque caterpillars living right in our own back yards! Come explore the incredible hidden world of New England caterpillars through hands-on, interactive activities that explore topics such as caterpillar anatomy, defensive adaptations, and shelter building. And, experience a huge variety of local caterpillars in all phases of their life cycles, curated and explained by naturalist Sam Jaffe and and other educators from The Caterpillar Lab.

This new exhibit was created by museum staff in collaboration with naturalist Sam Jaffe, creator of The Caterpillar Lab.

The live caterpillar lab portion of the exhibit will be open to visitors Wednesdays through Sundays only. Discovery Museum is closed Mondays.
