These colossal crawlers are taking over Callaway Gardens and calling Georgia’s authentic outdoor destination home in 2022!

Featuring more than 28 scenes, and over 73 larger-than-life insects, we proudly introduce MEGABUGS! Our new outdoor adventure encounters are an immersive and interactive area for ‘bugologists’ of any age to explore.

Guests can experience a bug’s life as they crawl like a spider, fly like a bee, and dig like an ant while interacting with these enormous insects. In a special habitat near the Discovery Center inside Callaway Gardens, guests will come face-to-face with a giant 15-foot Emperor Dragonfly, a 20-foot Hissing Cockroach, a 50-foot Madagascan Fire Millipede, and much more!

These exhibits spotlight special features including the individual sounds and movements that make these insects unique members of the animal kingdom.

MEGABUGS! Adventure Encounters is included with Gardens Admission and Annual Memberships.
