Amazing Butterflies
May 6 – Sep 29 all-day

The South Florida Science Center and Aquarium presents their new summer exhibit “Amazing Butterflies.”

The interactive exhibit features the entire lifecycle of the well-loved insect. Visitors will experience the challenges of being a caterpillar as it transforms into a beautiful butterfly, discovering how the caterpillars eat, move and live through a hands-on maze filled with activities the whole family will enjoy. Guests of all ages can learn what it’s like to fly like a butterfly, walk like a caterpillar and avoid getting stuck in a spider web. After learning about the lifecycle of the butterfly, guests can explore the butterfly gardens throughout the Science Center’s new Conservation Course, an 18-hole miniature golf course, to get an up-close look at the beautiful insects.
