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. Learn more about Wish Upon a Butterfly birthday party packages here. Exhibit Only: $3/person + general admission Exhibit +IMAX®: $5/person + general admission.

Michigan’s Last Wolverine

March 13 – April 30, 2014

In partnership with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources, MiSci is hosting the state’s “last wolverine” now through April 30. The wolverine was the last known wolverine to live in the wild in Michigan. She died of natural causes and was stuffed and mounted. An 8-ft high, 4-ft wide case displays the wolverine and includes information about this iconic animal.
