the caterpillar lab at discovery museum photoThe Caterpillar Lab, located in Malborough, NH, takes over the Community Gallery of the Discovery Museum and turns it into a mini version of their own lab space!

See a huge variety of New England caterpillar species showcased on open-air displays of local plants.

Get up close to enormous giant silk moth caterpillars, fierce-looking snake-mimicking caterpillars, convincing twig-mimiking caterpillars, and bubbly butterfly caterpillars.

Witness rare moments of metamorphosis and watch ecological relationships play out first-hand under a digital microscope.

Chat with the educators from The Caterpillar Lab—you're sure to discover something new!
