WHAT: The Butterfly Pavilion will take flight at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County (NHM) for the spring and summer months starting Sunday, March 17, with previews for members beginning March 15. Visitors are able to walk among hundreds of butterflies in NHM’s outdoor, open-air netted enclosure. The seasonal experience also features colorful native plants and plenty of natural light to help guests see these creatures flutter and fly. 

Visitors can expect to see the stages of the butterfly lifecycle — from eggs to caterpillars and chrysalises — for up to 30 different species, including California natives like the Mourning cloak and Common buckeye. Museum educators and animal care specialists will also be onsite to share what makes these animals so special. 

WHEN: March 17 – August 25, 2024, 10 AM-5 PM (last group admitted at 4:30 PM)

Timed tickets are for 30-minute sessions and are free for Members, $8 for Non-members with a general admission ticket.
