Embark on a celestial journey this year for Butterflies in Space. Inspired by the butterflies of the International Space Station in 2009, who successfully adapted to a zero-gravity environment, you can explore their take on the space station while the real “stars” of the show swirl through the Krohn Conservatory like a colorful cloud of stardust.

  1. Oh no! That’s terrible. They shouldn’t allow children–or anyone– to handle the butterflies 🙁

  2. I agree that the lack of supervision of children was horrible. I saw a little boy, very young mangle more than one. His parents where not watching him. It was sad. Could have been beautiful. Parents need to be accountable.

  3. Our family was there July 5th and saw none of the children misbehaving as commented upon above. It was very busy with lots of children, all using thei butterfly paper.
