Would you pay $100 to eat crickets?
It's hosting a cocktail party on Oct. 27 called "Cuisine From the Collections."
While many of the living plants and animals represented in the museum's 18 million research specimens already are food for other species, most aren't your typical kitchen staples.
Other menu items will include seaweed, buffalo and rabbit. The food is by the museum's caterer and chefs and students from Drexel University's Goodwin College of Professional Studies.
Tickets are $100 for nonmembers. Proceeds benefit the 200-year-old institution's mission of scientific research and exploration.
