Want to watch 100+ exotic butterflies float in nature? Head to the Pacific Island Water Garden Biome in Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens from Saturday, Feb. 25-Monday, May 29 (Memorial Day) for Blooms & Butterflies.

The viewing habitat is ideal for the butterflies to thrive, with bright sunlight, flora, nectar to sip on, and a variety of plants to bask on. And it will also make a great spot for a photo op.

In addition to watching the butterflies soar, you can also head to the Metamorphosis Lab in the Grand Atrium to learn about the butterfly life cycle.

Viewing the butterflies is included with the purchase of general admission tickets, which are free for children under three and $15-$22 for others. General admission allows you to enter between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m., and you must choose your entry time online when reserving tickets.
