Is it autumn yet?

You won't want to miss this, because along with the amazing, giant, robotic insects, the Witte is also rolling out its incredible insect collection in Beautiful Bugs: Specimens from the Witte Museum Collection. You'll also love our new yard art, Art in the Yard: Insect Innovations, giant bug sculptures made by students from Palo Alto College. Buzz on over for more great fun with science at the Witte Museum!
