If you haven't been to this museum yet, you should go. It's really a gem, and a great place to visit in winter. The kids were able to pet and hold lizards, snakes, and turtles, walk among flying butterflies, and learn about nature through play. They had such a great time, we bought a family membership ($60) and will be able to enjoy the resulting reciprocal relationships the museum has with others.
Here are the highlights of our trip in pictures.
The museum has a huge collection of butterfly specimens from all over the world.
The butterflies liked me - this one landed on my arm.
