NCYU Insect Museum Enjoy Chinese New Year at NCYU Insect Museum and the Fun of Keeping Insects

  The NCYU Insect Museum is open on a year-round basis and even during the Chinese New Year. Fans of insects and natural ecology are welcome to visit the museum, which is open from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. During the Chinese New Year. All visitors may enjoy an amazing “trip to the insect world” through a series of activities such as regular free guided tours and film appreciation.

  NCYU Insect Museum is the largest insect museum in Taiwan, featuring a gigantic hemispherical Butterfly Greenhouse Garden, where nearly a thousand living butterflies were rehabilitated, and visitors can enjoy the beauty of butterflies dancing around you in the amidst of a wide array of plants and flowers. It also boasts specific themed areas, including Taiwan's Protected Insect Models Area, Taiwan's Insect Specimens Area, Living Aquatic Insects Area, World's Rarest Insect Specimens Area, Living Insects and Insect Touching Area, Insect Resources Industry Area, and the must-visit Parent-child DIY Experience Area. Exclusively during the Chinese New Year, all visitors may enjoy closer contact with large reptiles and take pictures with them.

  Lin Hsing-Yu, a member of the museum staff, indicated that the Insect Museum features a petting area, visitors will be given a chance to caress beetle larvae, and Madagascar cockroaches. The Madagascar cockroaches, one of the largest cockroaches in the world, can be found in the forest in Africa. They are characterized by their interesting behaviors of compressing air out of their abdomen to create a hissing sound to scare off enemies or attract a mate. Moreover, they are gentle and not poisonous, and cannot fly, which make them easy for children to get closer observation. In recent years, they have become one of the most important pet insects for children, which is helpful for them to know more about insect ecology and nature.

  NCYU Insect Museum is your best destination during the Chinese New Year. You will not only have a chance to broaden your knowledge of insects but take pictures with the beautiful butterflies and handsome beetles. You may also feast your eyes on the large collections of insect specimens and true-to-life gigantic insect models. For further information, please contact the Insect Museum at 05-2779225 or go to the official website at http://insect.ncyu.edu.tw/.
