Butterflies & Blooms is a butterfly exhibition where visitors can immerse themselves in a habitat filled with hundreds of live butterflies. Colorful species native to South America, Asia, North America, and Africa are featured, as well as those native to Illinois.
The 2,800-square-foot white mesh enclosure is located on the Regenstein Learning Campus.
Visitors of all ages learn more about the life cycle and diversity of butterflies and moths and can also observe butterflies emerging through a window into the pupa room.
Butterflies & Blooms is made possible by the generous support of The Grainger Foundation.
