The Museum of Entomology

From our Audiograph series:

In the basement of the life sciences building at the University of California, Berkeley, there’s a little known museum that’s home to millions of dried bugs.

It’s a research collection that’s growing — with new specimens filed away every day. So what happens in there and what’s it like?

Find more information about Berkeley's Essig Museum here.
