The educational space was developed to inform visitors about how arthropods are collected and curated, about the diversity of Pennsylvanian arthropods, to highlight research at Penn State, and to instill a sense of awe and curiosity about arthropods.

The visitor space consists of two large rooms and a hallway, and our maximum occupancy is 25 visitors at a time. Please keep this in mind when planning group visits.
