E.H. Strickland Entomological Museum

With preserved insects from around the planet, the E.H. Strickland Entomological Museum in the department of Biological Sciences is an invaluable resource for researchers, students, and naturalists as it houses approximately one million specimens. It holds the largest collection of Mexican ground beetles in the world, as well as significant collections of other insects from North America. It is an extremely important regional collection, with specimens representing most species of insects in the province of Alberta.

As the University of Alberta is enacting additional safety measures regarding the state of public health emergency in Alberta, all museum collections will be closed until further notice.
