Moody Gardens will open a special new exhibit just in time for the summer vacation season. “Amazeing” Butterflies is scheduled to open Saturday, May 15 and will feature a maze and free-flying live butterflies. The exhibit is designed to teach visitors the life cycle, variety of species and survival challenges of the colorful insects.
As soon as guests step inside the exhibit, they will be surrounded by hundreds of butterflies that are released daily. As they continue their journey, they will enter a maze through the huge monarch caterpillar tunnel. The maze will feature dead-ends, down which, lurks graphics with poisonous plants and predators that pose the same threat butterflies face daily. Visitors will discover the unique facts behind the beauty of the butterflies through interactive games, puzzles and various other activities. Guests will also be able to learn about gardens and plants that effectively attract the flying insects.
Amazeing Butterflies will be open from Saturday, May 15 through Sept. 6. The admission is $5.95 for all ages, and it’s free for children ages three and under. For more information, please visit moodygardens.org or call 1-800-582-4673.
