About these ratings

If you're traveling to Victoria with kids in tow, many recent visitors recommend a stop at the Victoria Bug Zoo. Located a block or so north of the Inner Harbour, this fairly small facility is home to a large number of creepy crawlies. Here, you'll come face-to-face with gigantic walking sticks, furry tarantulas and even glow-in-the-dark scorpions. Recent visitors rave about the zoo's employees, who are ready to answer any questions you may have about their six- and eight-legged friends. As one TripAdvisor user writes, "Knowledge is shared at a level that is interesting for a four-year old as well as a forty-year old (or more, like me)."

The Victoria Bug Zoo is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is $9 CAD (roughly $9 USD) for adults, and discounts are available for seniors and children 18 and under. For more information, check out the Victoria Bug Zoo's website.
