Butterfly Exhibit at The Bob Bullock

Saturday morning we ventured downtown to see the butterfly exhibit at the Bob Bullock state history museum. It was cold and rainy, but lots of fun!

They had stations set up inside the museum for kids to learn more about butterflies- face painting, mask making, coloring, etc. Once you visited each station, you could turn in your "scorecard" and receive a lollipop, information about butterflies and a package of milkweed seeds to grow and attract butterflies in your backyard.

Then, we made our way to the IMAX to see the Flight of the Butterflies 3D movie.

The movie was about 45 minutes long and followed a Canadian scientist who began tagging butterflies in the mid-century to try and determine where they went. It was fascinating and the 3D effects of hundreds of butterflies was awesome! They even had one of the scientist at the museum to introduce the film. Abby grabbed at butterflies throughout the film- I was certain she was going to grab the man's head in front of us!

We all learned a lot more about butterflies on Saturday!
