Caterpillars $5.50 each or 5 for $20, museum admission not necessary to visit the shop

Kids looking to experience the magic of metamorphosis this Spring can adopt a Painted Lady Caterpillar from Kidspace's Busy Bee Learning Store.

The caretakers then look after their caterpillars until they become butterflies,  and then release them into nature. Each caterpillar comes with food, adoption sheet, and care instructions. A single caterpillar cup is $5.49 and a cup of 5 caterpillars is $19.99.

Kidspace receives newly hatched caterpillars each week, sales are first-come, first-served while supplies last each week. You can check supply before coming to the museum on the website notification, or call the Busy Bee Learning Store at 626.449.9144, ext 5223.

Caterpillars are available March 16 through April 30, while supplies last.  Museum admission is not necessary to visit the store.
