Come and sit with 2,000 butterflies as they settle fragrant flowers and bushed. Each winter Montreal’s Jardin Botanique hosts the Butterflies Go Free exhibit. Sit and take in the rainbow of colors as the butterflies flit through the Main Exhibition Greenhouse. There are 50 species of the most beautiful bugs in the world to enjoy.

Listen to music while watching the incandescent Blue Morpho butterflies fly around the waterfalls or see the Cobra, the world’s largest moth named for its wing tips that resemble snakeheads. Take in the fragrant smells of the Butterfly bush, hyacinth flowers and watch the butterflies feed off these fragrant plants. See butterflies emerging from the cocoons and learn more about their lifecycle and learn how to identify certain species. There are butterflies from around the worlds including Southeast Asia, Central America, Indonesia, Thailand, South and North America.

Learn about the unique properties and the butterfly’s importance in the ecosystem during the presentation, Bug Bites Butterflies Go Free. It tries to answer all your burning questions about these amazing insects.
