Butterfly House at miSci
Sat, Feb 13, 2016 until Tue, Apr 19, 2016
miSci (museum of innovation and science), 15 Nott Terrace Heights, Schenectady NY
For a small child, there are few things more magical than rainbows... and one would be: butterflies! Escape cabin fever, and discover hundreds of brilliantly colored native butterflies at miSci.
See if you can spot all of these fascinating varieties flying about (and possibly landing on you!):
The butterfly house at MiSci is open from February 14th through April 19th, 2015 and free with admission (miSci members are also free). After paying museum admission, start your learning adventure at the greenhouse just inside the entrance, where you'll find the butterflies in their recreated habitat, plus museum guides to answer all of your butterfly-related questions.
Insider tip: Because butterflies need a warm, humid environment to regulate body temperature, you can expect the butterfly house to be very warm in contrast with the cool museum, so dress in layers.
