The Butterfly Conservatory at The American Museum of Natural History New York is definitely worth a visit. It’s very educational and gives you the opportunity to see butterflies and moths from many regions of the planet. The conservatory itself is very well done mimicking a tropical rain-forest, and yet another example of indoor exhibits using the latest technology to recreate environs.
Entry to the conservatory is extra on top of your Museum entry ticket. The exhibit also delves into the evolution, conservation and ecology of these delicate creatures.
