Rainforests of the World: New butterfly experience opens March 3

Experience our newly refreshed four-story rainforest dome, packed with lush blooms and butterfly surprises! From inside the canopy, watch the life cycle of tropical butterflies unfold before your eyes through a new viewing chamber, including several colorful butterfly species new to the dome. Stay tuned for special programming and learn about the Academy’s work to sustain the world’s tropical rainforests and the species that call them home.



On Thursday 3/9 feed your brain and body at NightLife with brain expanding talks and yoga classes around the museum! Bring your own mat and get centered in front of a Philippine coral reef or at African Hall, or find your zen while flying through space and stars. Space is limited so buy tickets and learn more about other NightLife events this month!
