Approximately 30.000 species of insects have been recorded in Greece, many of which do not exist anywhere else.

Visitors to the entomological exhibition of the Museum can look at butterflies and moths from Greece and other countries; there are also representative species of the most important groups such as diptera (flies) and hymenoptera (bees, wasps, ants), orthoptera (locusts, crickets), and coleoptera (beetles, ladybirds) etc.

A series of lighted panels present the stages of the biological cycle of insects as well as anatomical elements of their structure. Special panels present the geographical distribution of Lepidoptera in Europe, including their migration patterns.
