I want to be useful and bring enjoyment to all people, even those I've never met. I want to go on living even after my death!"

Popular "Butterflies Alive" Exhibit Closing Soon....Don't Miss It!

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 not to be missed.

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.

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 there, you’ll also be able to take in the full butterfly experience by seeing the all new OMNI film, Flight of the Butterflies. For more information, visit the film’s website at flightofthebutterflies.com. 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 found at sciencespectrum.org. Science Spectrum Museum, 2579 S. Loop 289.
