March 9 (Opening Day) - Event runs through June 12….Science Spectrum: Butterflies Alive - Do you remember the last time you saw a butterfly? Was it in a park, a garden, or your own backyard? What about a moth, with soft wings whispering in the shadow of night? Butterflies Alive is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for the whole family that you won’t want to miss! Butterflies Alive brings the magical experience of a wild butterfly encounter up close and personal, providing you and your family with the thrilling experience of being surrounded by not a single butterfly, but hundreds of butterflies and moths flying freely and closely. Contained within a 3,000 square foot garden enclosure, flowering plants, trees, and ornate, insect-themed topiaries create an inspiring and mesmerizing atmosphere. Upon entering the “Flight House”, or the greenhouse structure that contains the butterflies, moths and flowering plants, one may spot a Zebra Longwing butterfly busily flying in search of a flower’s nectar meal, or perhaps a Luna Moth roosting in anticipation of the evening’s approach. The well know Monarch butterfly will be easily found most days, and is a central theme of the garden. Butterflies Alive brings these beautiful winged insects to life before your eyes as never before. A “Pupae Emergence House” is a welcome feature of the garden, and is where new butterflies and moths emerge safely before being released into the Flight House (new butterflies are added every week). Viewing windows into the inner chamber ensure that every visitor will get a chance to see a butterfly or moth emerge from its chrysalis. If you’re patient, you may just catch a Red Admiral drying her wings after her emergence. Daily releases, performed by Science Spectrum staff, into the Flight House are an added bonus - don't miss!

Insider Tips: This exhibition is expected to be popular during it’s opening week during Spring Break and on weekends, so there are a few things you can do to make your trip a little easier.

· Butterfly House tickets will be single entry admission only.

· Butterfly House accommodates a limited number of people at a time.

· During Spring Break (March 9-17), and peak times on weekends, ticket holders will be admitted into the Flight House in groups. The time allotted will depend on crowds.

· Admission will be on a first-come-first-served basis. To avoid possible lines for entry, consider arriving earlier in the day.

No strollers allowed inside the Flight House. Stroller parking is available in exhibit space. The Flight House is wheelchair accessible. Museum will have special extended hours until 6:00 pm each day during Spring Break , March 9-17. Groups of 20 or more may want to consider making reservations. Group rates are available for groups of 10 or more. Call 806-745-2525 x234 for group rates and reservations.

While you’re here, you’ll also be able to take in the full butterfly experience by seeing the all new OMNI film, Flight of the Butterflies. Flight of the Butterflies is an interconnected scientific adventure story that spans not only thousands of miles, but generations. It’s about the remarkable Monarch butterfly migration, the most incredible migration on Earth, and the determined scientists who spent 40 years trying to discover exactly where the butterflies mysteriously disappeared when they flew south for winter. Danaus plexippus or Dana for short, is the Monarch we follow on her perilous journey from Mexico to Canada, along with her daughter, granddaughter and great granddaughter. The outstanding fourth, or “Super Generation” of butterflies travels more than 2,000 km south, all the way from the northern United States and southern Canada to Mexico, overwinters and makes one final short trip to the southern United States to lay eggs. Then, the cycle begins again. It’s one incredible trip you won’t want to miss! For more information on Flight of the Butterflies, visit the film’s website at The OMNI Theater will be showing the 2D version of this film. For group and school group rates and reservations please call 806-745-2525 x234. Additional exhibit and film information may be found at Science Spectrum Museum, 2579 S. Loop 289.
