Visit Butterfly House exhibit at miSci

Discover hundreds of brilliantly colored native delights at the temporary resident butterfly house  on display through April 19, Monday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday, noon to 5 p.m., at the Museum of Innovation and Science, 15 Nott Terrace Heights, Schenectady.

After paying museum admission, ($6.50-$9.50), 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.

See if you can spot all of these fascinating varieties flying about (and possibly landing on you!):

Monarchs
Black Swallowtails
Buckeyes
Painted Ladies
Tiger Swallowtails
Spicebush Swallowtails
Be sure to stop at the chrysalis learning center to see the butterflies as they emerge. Learn about the exciting life cycles of the butterflies, and discover how to create butterfly-friendly environments in your back yard, too.

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.
