Beekeeping

A real, live beehive...


(THIRD FLOOR) Enjoy our glass-enclosed beehive located on the third floor and learn how they communicate through movement that looks like a variety of different dances.  Watch as hundreds of bees travel in and out of the colony and perform a variety of jobs from feeding young bees to collecting pollen and nectar to making honey.

Try to locate the queen bee. HINT: She's the one with the white dot on her back. She may be difficult to find since she's quite a busy lady.  She lays close to 3,000 eggs per day!
