Honeybees

A live colony of honeybees visible from inside the museum

The queen bee and the multitude of chores performed by workers and drones are on display for all to see in this indoor/outdoor hive of living and hard-working honeybees. The bees set up their hive in an indoor exhibit, but have access to the outside of the building through a clear tube to gather pollen and nectar and return with it to the hive.
