The Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County (NHM) will open its seasonal Butterfly Pavilion for the spring and summer months starting Sunday, March 5, with previews for members beginning March 3. Visitors are able to walk among hundreds of butterflies in NHM’s outdoor, open-airnetted enclosure. The experience also features colorful native plants and plenty of natural light to help you see these creatures flutter and fly.
Visitors can expect to see the stages of the butterfly lifecycle – from eggs to caterpillars and chrysalises. The Butterfly Pavilion houses up to 30 different species, including California natives like the Western tiger swallowtail and Common buckeye. Museum educators and animal care specialists will also be onsite to share what makes these animals so special.
