The Museum of Bees, in Poyales del Hoyo, Spain, provides a unique opportunity for visitors to safely watch these hardworking insects in action. The museum has six gigantic hives hanging from the ceiling and enclosed in glass, allowing visitors to get close to the bees without the risk of getting stung.

Gerardo Gonzalez Perez, the director of the museum and a beekeeper himself, set up the first hives over 34 years ago while still a student. Over the years, beekeeping has become his passion and main activity. He has given talks and lectures in schools and colleges throughout the Spanish geography and provided beekeeping courses for amateurs. In 1997, after 20 years of work and research, he created the Bee Museum in order to pass on his knowledge and try to improve the world's perception of bees in society. Since its opening, thousands of people have passed through this facility, where they have had the opportunity to learn about the life of bees as pollinators, how they work, the basics of beekeeping, etc.
