Shrink down to the size of a butterfly, and take flight on a fun adventure this winter at Amazing Butterflies. Discover a surprise around each corner as you navigate an engaging maze-like exhibition that’s all about butterflies, caterpillars, and their environments. Kids and parents alike can climb in pupa pods, crawl like a caterpillar through a monarch tunnel, soar down the butterfly zip line, and fend off a hairy plant attack as blades of grass tower above. Amazing Butterflies combines the fun of a playground, the excitement of interactive learning, and engaging activities to create a unique, family-friendly experience that opens just in time to brighten 2017’s coldest months.
