Butterflies Go Free


February 28 to April 28, 2019

Science and nature
Hochelaga-Maisonneuve and Rosemont

For over 20 years, thousands of multicoloured butterflies dart about Montréal’s Botanical Garden in the Butterflies Go Free exhibit, a highly-anticipated annual occurrence that marks the onset of spring.

Every year, the main exhibition greenhouse transforms into an extravagant butterfly conservatory. Set amidst a lush, natural setting, those nature's masterpieces flit, flutter and sometimes land on visitors, much to their delight!

A popular outing for families, Butterflies Go Free offers the chance to experience the poetry and learn about the science behind these winged marvels. A 10-minute guided activity is offered in the greenhouse every hour, letting you in on everything you ever wanted to know about lepidopterans and more!



Feb 28 to Apr 28, 2019: Sun, Tue, Wed, Thu, Fri, Sat, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
