Since first opening at the American Museum of Natural History in 1998, the Butterfly Conservatory has been cherished by millions of children and adults alike. It boasts a collection of 500 butterflies, as well as the stunning landscape of tropical flowers and lush vegetation that characterizes its balmy vivarium.
The collection reopens tomorrow, October 10th, and is on view through May 2010.
Check out a preview of the exhibit below, and then go see the butterflies in person!
