The extremely popular Butterflies Alive! exhibit returns to the Sprague Butterfly Pavilion every summer. Featuring a dazzling variety of more than two dozen tropical butterfly species from Costa Rica, this immersive experience welcomes guests to walk through a beautiful garden while nearly 1,000 live butterflies flutter freely around them. Peer into the emergence chamber to see butterflies at an earlier stage of life. You might witness an adult butterfly popping out of its chrysalis!

Butterflies Alive! is included with Museum admission. Members are always free.
