The Butterfly Rainforest was one of the most captivating things about my trip the the museum. You walk in through two sets of doors, designed to prevent any of the butterflies from leaving their sanctuary. Walking from the perfect air conditioning into the thick humidity of the exhibit is one of the first indicators that make you feel like you are a guest to the plants and animals within, rather than viewing them as a guest in a world dominated by humans. The rest of the museum is very similar. The nature within the exhibits goes about it's business while you pass through, doing nothing but watching and appreciating. I wasn't the only one who was in awe at the museum. I several families with small wide-eyed children using nature as a way to bring themselves closer. When you see the beauty nature is capable of beholding it instills in you an ethical duty to protect it.
