Museum for Insects

Museum for insects


Located inside the Peabody Essex Museum, we are an insect-sized museum that features artwork specifically created for house crickets. Inside, crickets can interact with hands-on/legs-on exhibits, enjoy food and drink from the café and experience live humans, both through a picture window and through a videophone chat that connects the Museum for Insects to the humans visiting the Peabody Essex Museum. Humans visiting us from the internet can visit ourlive webcam, and can activate a cricket puppet and electronic chirping instruments located within.

All are welcome to visit the current exhibition Telepresent Animal Hall of Fame, curated by Doo-Sung Yoo, which includes student artwork developed in theTelepresent Animal course at the Ohio State University. We hope this experience provides a platform for communication, appreciation and aesthetic pleasure across species.
