Welcome!  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 visitors 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. Visitors 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.
