Join us at the Museum’s Magic Wings Butterfly House for an up-close look into the fascinating world of both butterflies and beer! Enjoy a beverage from our cash bars, talk to experts in the brewing, entomology, and horticulture fields, or simply stretch out and relax on the lawn under a summertime sunset. 

Immerse yourself among 30-50 different species of butterflies and 200 species of tropical plants in our butterfly conservatory. Learn about sustainable butterfly farming from our Entomology Specialists and meet some of the exotic insects that call the Museum home. Take part in a very special butterfly release and watch as a variety of newly emerged Lepidoptera take flight for the first time!
