Wish Upon a Butterfly
January 11 – June 15, 2014
Walk among live butterflies in the Wish Upon a Butterfly exhibit while hundreds of butterflies flutter around. Some may even take a seat on a shoulder or rest in still laps. Best of all, these winged wonders will sit on guests’ fingers while being hand fed a special nectar solution. This experience also teaches a butterfly’s life cycles from caterpillar to adult. Explore the wonder of a caterpillar changing into a chrysalis or a butterfly emerging from one. The Flight of the Butterflies IMAX® movie is great complement to this exhibit.

Exhibit Only: $3/person + general admission
Exhibit + IMAX®: $5/person + general admission
Calling all children! Do you like to build and create? The Michigan Science Center’s newest hands-on Kidstruction Zone exhibit is just for you (parents can sit back and relax while you invent). This 3,000 square foot space is designed with 10 separate build zones for the architect or engineer inside us all. Build large structures with giant LEGO bricks, create detailed buildings with Keva planks, invent futuristic vehicles with k’nex and get inspired with other Kidstruction building supplies. Great for all ages, Kidstruction Zone is free with paid museum admission.
