Atlas Obscura’s Special Access: The Entomology Collection at the Academy of Natural Sciences

Thursday, August 12, 2021

5:00 PM-6:00 PM

Join Atlas Obscura for Special Access, an online experience that brings you into some of the world's most fascinating, hidden and under-appreciated spaces.

You’ll get to join in on the wondrous exploration of some of the Academy’s most popular exhibits and hidden, behind-the-scenes collection. On August 12, Senior Director of Exhibits and Public Spaces Jennifer Sontchi will take you on a live, one-hour Special Access tour of the Academy of Natural Sciences.

You'll get a closer look at the Entomology Collection in honor of the Academy’s annual Bug Fest, and you will meet the curator, Jon Gelhaus! While you won’t see all 19 million specimens in the Academy’s collection, you’ll be sure to get an insider’s look at America’s oldest natural history museum.
