Aubrey Miller, exhibition of free-flying tropical butterflies from the Americas, Africa, and Asia at the American Museum of Natural History in NYC 28
Until end of May 2019, the American Museum of Natural History in NYC is hosting Aubrey Miller - an exhibition of free-flying tropical butterflies from the Americas, Africa, and Asia. The exhibition will be fun for children. The butterflies are housed in a vivarium that approximates their natural habitat, includes live flowering plants that serve as nectar sources, and features controlled artificial light, temperature, and humidity.
Featured species include iridescent blue morpho butterflies, striking scarlet swallowtails, and large owl butterflies. Text panels located immediately outside the vivarium offer information about the evolution and life cycle of butterflies, including explanations of mimicry, diversity, and butterflies’ important role in conservation.
The exhibition is located in Whitney Hall of Oceanic Birds on second floor. Generous support for The Butterfly Conservatory has been provided by the Eileen P. Bernard Exhibition Fund.Last updated 11.10.2018

This album contains photos of the the American Museum of Natural History in New York, and it is unlike an ordinary museum. This museum is very kids-friendly and attractive. In the Mammal Hall, we were sure that the animals are going to come alive and leave their spots. At the entrance to the museum visitors can see a giant piece of a meteorite, which feels like iron by touch. Huge dinosaurs' skeletons are exhibited on the last floor of the museum.
