"Bugs!", Foellinger-Freimann Botanical Conservatory, Fort Wayne, IndianaYour Road Trips Gardener considers butterflies “living flowers”. If you’ve got a little one enraptured by “Bugs!” be sure to swing through Northeast Indiana to catch the butterfly exhibit at the Foellinger-Freimann Botanical Conservatory, 1100 South Calhoun Street Fort Wayne, Indiana, sometime tomorrow (April 14, 2018) through July 8, 2018.

It’s the 16th year for live butterflies, but you can also explore the larger world of insects and their arthropod relatives.

Both kids and adults will thrill to the experience of entering the butterfly tent filled with over a hundred exotic butterflies as they feed, fly, and rest. In the hallway display, there are beetles, spiders, mantids, and millipedes. (Activity sheets encourage visitor inquiry.)

Hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday (open ’til 8 p.m. Thursdays) plus noon to 4 p.m. Sundays. Regular admission applies: $5 for adults, $3 for children 3-17, ages 2 and under, free.
