Attractions: International Butterfly Show at Krohn Conservatory

By Danielle Federle · April 21st, 2010 · CityBeat Recommends

The 15th International Butterfly Show at the Krohn Conservatory is titled (and also features) the magnificent “Butterflies of Japan.” While wandering through Krohn’s beautiful Japanese-inspired garden, view many exotic plants and flowers, including a Sakura display about Japan’s rich traditions in regards to cherry blossom trees.

The floral exhibit will change three times. You can view the Sakura exhibit through May 11, followed by a Tanabata bamboo exhibit until June 1 and then the Otsukimi (moon) exhibit through June 20. Visitors will also experience hundreds of beautiful butterflies in free flight throughout the conservatory. Everyone is encouraged to come experience and learn about Japan’s culture and the wonders nature brings.

The exhibit is open 10 a.m.-5 p.m. daily. Tickets are $6, $5 for seniors and $4 for children over 4. Get event details and find nearby bars and restaurants here.
