It's time to emerge from our chrysalis! The Natural History Museum welcomes butterfly lovers back to the Butterfly Pavilion and Nature Gardens. Get up close to beautiful butterflies at this seasonal exhibit.

See hundreds of free-flying butterflies inside, and meet the awesome Gallery Interpreters who can explain why these animals are so special. 

Advanced, online tickets are highly recommended to ensure entry into the Museum and for special ticketed experiences.
