The butterfly garden was my favorite exhibit in the museum. Its open air feel and lush vegetation makes you feel like you are in the amazon. The serene sounds of the calm waters rushing added to the feel that this was a natural way to see butterflies. But perhaps the biggest surprise was how close I was to the butterflies. There were no barriers to separate us and I felt truly attached to them. I learned that butterflies need warm climates to thrive and are cold blooded which is why early in the day when the sun is up, they stay on the roof. I understood this fact much more clearly because I was there to see it. Overall, the museum gave me a newfound appreciation for nature and how we got to this place through eons of evolution and adaptation.
