Open House

Next Museum Open House: spring 2017

We will soon announce the date for our next Open House in 2017. Please keep checking back and follow us on Facebook, Instagram or our blog to get the latest updates!

We hope you will join us! Admission and parking will be free. Doors will be open between 10 am - 4 pm.

The Museum of Biological Diversity Open House is the premier outreach event in the College of Arts and Sciences of The Ohio State University. Every year we open our doors to the general public for a day of biodiversity exploration and discovery. During the event you can get a behind-the-scenes view of our world-class collections (insects, mites, plants, fishes, molluscs, birds, mammals, and animal sounds), plus meet the faculty, staff, and students who study the flora and fauna of Ohio and the world. You can also engage in a number of hands-on activities, including our Arthropod Petting Zoo, Seedling Planting, Bugs-in-Goo, the Bug Drawing Station, and more. 

On this site you will find a bit of the history of the Museum Open House, since its inception in 2005. We are actively working on this historic archive, so please check back here for more updates.
