It's (almost!) time to emerge from our chrysalis! The Natural History Museum welcomes the community to the outdoor Butterfly Pavilion and Nature Gardens as the first phase of reopening after months of COVID-19 closure.

Advance, timed-tickets must be reserved prior to visiting. Tickets allow for entry through the North Entrance and then a stroll through the Nature Gardens on the way to the Butterfly Pavilion.

The number of guests is being limited to provide for physical distancing and a safe environment for guests and staff. See website for additional safety guidelines.

Tickets are available 2 weeks in advance; new tickets are released every Monday at 10am.
