Presented May 11 - September 8, 2024

BEES! brings interactive fun & learning to visitors of all ages. This bilingual exhibit offers an immersive and engaging experience for families. Get up close and personal with a queen bee, her egg, and larvae in a giant honeycomb model. Test your bee knowledge on the BEE ID Spinner, try doing a Waggle Dance, or do research at the Bee-Search Station.

Exhibit topics include indigenous bees, beekeeping equipment, bee products, and bees in popular culture. Gain a newfound respect for this sophisticated insect and an understanding of how bee health is an indicator of the health of our environment.

BEES! is organized by Museum of Surrey in collaboration with Honeybee Centre. Funded by the Government of Canada.
