Bugs Bugs Bugs And More Bugs Return To The Maine State Museum

September 12th, bugs will flood the Maine State Museum in Augusta.  This is a fascinating exhibit that is free to attend.  Even if you suffer from some form of bug-phobia, it's worth attending.  I did last year and conquered my spider fear and held a tarantula...and lived to talk about it.
