Insects and Their Relatives

Insects and Their Relatives

The Butterfly Garden and Insectarium's main hall is swirling with color and motion. Brilliant, large models of prehistoric insects sweep across the ceiling over cleverly crafted habitats populated by the living collection. It's a sensory experience you won't soon forget. Realistic murals by Karen Carr set a stunning backdrop for this area.
