Who doesn’t appreciate the beauty and grace of a butterfly? And how it transforms itself from a simple caterpillar?
Now through the end of September, kids young and old can learn about these backyard wonders at the South Florida Science Center and Aquarium.
“Amazing Butterflies” is an interactive exhibit that features the entire life cycle of this well-loved insect.
Visitors to the Science Center 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 everyone will enjoy. Guests can learn what it’s like to fly like a butterfly, walk like a caterpillar and avoid getting stuck in a spider web.
Afterward, 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.
Tickets to the exhibit are included in the general admission, which is $15 for adults, $11 for children 3-12 and free to members and children under 3.
The South Florida Science Center is at 4801 Dreher Trail in West Palm Beach. For more information, go online to sfsciencecenter.org.
