Crockell Butterfly Center
Houston is full of things to do, but the Museum of Natural Science is sure to stand out. The interactive exhibits and intriguing displays make each and every visit a special one.
One of the main attractions of the museum is the three-story, glass Crockrell Butterfly Center. This beautiful building is a full rainforest conservatory that houses a 50 foot waterfall. The tropical flowers harbor hundreds of different butterfly species that are transported to the facility from around the globe. Visitors can enjoy the butterflies up close and personal - some may even land on you!
Want to learn more about butterflies and insects? The Brown Hall of Entomology, located inside the Butterfly Center, offers 3 full levels of activities for people of all ages. The main level, The Land of Beeyond, allows kids to dive into the world of bugs with puzzles, books, and honey comb they can hold. The lower level, Insects and Us, shows people how important insects are to human life. Also, check out the back yard gardening tips to learn how to attract insects in your own backyard. Last is The Amazing World of Arthropods, located on the upper level of the museum. Here, visitors can see all kinds of living insects interacting with their own kind. You can see wasps building their nests, ants filling their mounds, and - if you are lucky - see a butterfly hatch!
For everyone who loves gardening, the Crockrell Butterfly Center sells plants in the spring and fall. Grab some nectar plants to attract some of the local butterflies and caterpillars. The sale only runs until the plants run out so be sure to get there early.
