Over 8,000 insects, arachnids, beautiful butterflies, and beetles await your family at one of the world’s largest private collections on display at the May Natural History Museum.

For over 80 years, May Museum Founder James May traveled the world finding over 100,000 fascinating specimens of bugs, insects and other things that crawl on the ground. Visit one of the world’s largest private collections of outstanding giant insects, related creatures, and rare artifacts. From big bugs to mini mites, stop in the May Museum to see why it’s appropriately called the “Bug Museum.” The museum is located on Highway 115, South of Colorado Springs.


We will accept reservations for groups of 10 or more during the months that we are closed for the Winter (October- April).
We have the worlds largest private insect collection consisting of over 8,000 bugs!
A bug is simply a TYPE of insect that has a straw shaped mouth (called a stylet) and no teeth; like dragonflies and butterflies. Insects usually have 2 pairs of wings and 3 pairs of legs; like mosquitos and flies.
Depending on where, in Colorado Springs, you’re driving from, it can take between 20-30 minutes.
