Butterflies in Flight

Butterflies in Flight

The popular Joe W. and Dorothy Dorsett Brown Foundation Butterflies in Flight exhibit offers with an amazing array of butterflies in a spectacular free-flight exhibit. 

This serene, Asian-inspired garden flutters with life as butterflies swoop and soar from one flower to another—perhaps even resting for a moment on the shoulder of a visitor. Close encounters with these beautiful creatures provide vivid memories that last a lifetime.
