AfterHours Up Close: Bees, Beer, & Butterflies

Visit the Museum’s Magic Wings Butterfly House and the Bayer Insectarium for an up-close look into the buzzing world of bees, beer and butterflies! Enjoy a beverage from the cash bars, talk to experts
in the brewing, entomology, and horticulture fields, or simply stretch out and relax on the lawn under a summertime sunset.

Immerse yourself among 30-50 different global species of butterflies, observe honeybees at work, or delight in the beauty of 200 species of tropical plants in our butterfly conservatory. Learn about pollinators from Entomology Specialists and meet some of the exotic insects that call the Museum home. Take part in a very special butterfly release and watch as a variety of newly emerged Lepidoptera take flight for the first time!
