Our Mission

The Insect Asylum fosters appreciation in animals and the natural world through a unique, immersive, and inclusive educational experience.


Through promoting eco-sustainability, prioritizing neurodivergent learning, and creating an inclusive environment for all, we strive to help visitors understand our impact on the environment and feel welcome to learn and grow in their own unique way.


As an institution that values art, we believe that taxidermy and entomology are important practices that can capture the beauty and diversity of the animal kingdom. By combining education and art, we aim to inspire curiosity and respect for nature in all who visit.

Eco-Friendly programs

At The Insect Asylum, our commitment to eco-sustainability is at the heart of our operations. We tirelessly strive to minimize our ecological footprint and foster a harmonious coexistence with the environment. Our practices include utilizing renewable energy sources, implementing water conservation measures, and prioritizing the use of recycled and locally sourced materials.

24/7 Museum Support

As a small, self-funded organization, we prioritize providing the highest level of support for our animals and community. Our dedicated team works tirelessly, often burning the midnight oil, to ensure the magic happens. Living onsite, we meet the demands of behind-the-scenes operations, striving around the clock to maintain a safe and comfortable environment for all. Your support directly contributes to our ongoing commitment.

Multilingual Team

Although not everyone at TIA is multilingual, we are trying hard to change that, currently we have team members who can assist with Spanish and Portuguese, if you're in need of assistance in one of these languages please let us know and we will tell you when these team members are available for tours or classes. If they are unavailable, we will try our best with google translate and kindness to ensure you have a fulfilled and enjoyable experience.

Commitment to our community

We are constantly working to improve our offerings and expand upon our classes and community programing. Our expert team of artists and educators are passionate about developing new creative, fun, and engaging experiences for you to continue learning every time you visit.
