Fodor's Review

Shrink down to ant size and experience "Life Underground," explore the world's insect myth and lore, venture into a Louisiana swamp, and marvel at the hundreds of delicate denizens in the Japanese butterfly garden. Then tour the termite galleries and other sections devoted to the havoc insects wreak so you can sample Cajun-fried crickets and other insect cuisine without a twinge of guilt.
