Amazing Butterflies Maze

Saturday, September 15, 2018 - 10:00am until 4:00pm

Explore the fascinating world of butterflies. This is a traveling exhibit produced and toured by Minotaur Mazes, a Seattle-based exhibitions company specializing in engaging, maze-based learning adventures. Divided into themed sections, the maze encompasses the life journey of a caterpillar and its metamorphosis into a butterfly. Amazing Butterflies is both mentally and physically engaging and offer visitors of all ages a fun, hands-on way to discover the enthralling world of one of the planet’s most colorful insects. With a unique view of the world from a butterfly’s eyes, maze activities are designed to reveal intriguing facts about a butterfly’s life and the challenges they encounter along the way. Through an indoor maze visitors can crawl like a caterpillar, wrap up in a cocoon, fly away on a zip line and experience the adventures of all stages of a butterfly’s transformation. The museum's Butterfly Porch is open June 9 - Aug. 8 on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. Guests can observe a flutter of live butterflies up-close and personal at the Butterfly Porch. (Butterfly Porch capacity limited to 20 guests at one time. Schedule subject to change.) Thanks to Carolina Heritage Nursery for landscaping the museum’s Butterfly Porch. Exhibit runs from June 9, 2018 – September 15, 2018.
