If it crawls, you'll find it at the Natural History Museum's 31st Annual Bug Fair, the largest bug fair in North America. The museum's most popular weekend event hosts more than 50 exhibitors displaying exotic insect collections, tarantulas, centipedes and millipedes, as well as honey, silk, jewelry and themed artwork. You can interact with members of the research and collections staff, while kids watch an insect parade, go on nature walks or take part in hands-on activities. If you want to add more protein to your diet, entomophagists David George Gordon and Aly Moore prepare crunchy bug snacks in a "bug chef cook-off."
