OVERVIEW

Discover the REAL tools that beekeepers use to keep their hives healthy and happy. From a display of a real beekeeper’s suit to a benton cage (queen bee transportation box), you can open a drawer to the wonders of beekeeping!

What’s the buzz?

Step up to our glass-enclosed beehive located on the third floor! See if you can identify the three different types of bees (workers, drones, and our queen) while watching 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 painted 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!

Special Thanks:

And the generous support of individual donors, like you.
