What's the Buzz? The Life of the Honey Bee

Explore the life of the honey bee in a new interactive exhibit by the Buell Children’s Museum at Sangre de Cristo Arts and Conference Center. The interactive exhibit, “What’s the Buzz? The Life of the Honey Bee,” opens on January 17th and runs through May 13th.

The exhibit is geared towards introducing children and families to the role of the honeybee in our society. Buell will be teaching about honey bees’ stages of development, how they have impacted different cultures, as well as their place in our world today.

“What's the Buzz?” is going to offer the community a great opportunity to step into the life and times of a honey bee and explore honeycomb panels in a hive, a giant garden, farmers markets, and a bee lab. The Buell Children’s Museum Communications Liaison, Danielle Todisco, is excited about what this new exhibit is bringing to the Buell.

“I'm really excited about the interactivity as well as the educational content that we're going to be having in different sections of the museum. There's going to be so much to do you're not going to want to stop moving, learning, and playing,” Todisco said.

Within this exhibit, we want our patrons to really connect to how important the impact of the honey bee is in our community. “What’s the Buzz?” will show how vital the role of the honeybee is not just in our community, but to our planet as well. Not only will we encourage our museum guests to “bee” a hero and save the bees, we are also going to be providing sustainable crafting projects to make in our Artrageous Art Studio as well as home crafting activities that we’ll be incorporating in honor of Earth Day on social media.

Members of the Buell team are also excited to partner with local organizations to help spread the love and awareness of honey bees. Director of the Buell Children’s Museum, Jerica Khosla, is looking forward to this renewed collaboration.

“In many ways, we are turning a new leaf at the Buell. We’re excited to usher in a new era of robust educational content, exhibit development, and interactive play. This exhibit will be the first of many feasts for the eyes and senses.”

We are looking forward to seeing all the busy bees for this exhibit! See you here!
