Students hoping to cling to the last bit of summer in Fairbanks can venture up to the University of Alaska Museum of the North to hang out with some butterflies.
The museum’s newest exhibit, the Butterfly Pavilion, houses over 100 butterflies, of all shapes and sizes, in over 200 sq. feet of playing room. The pavilion opened on Saturday, Sept. 18, with several excited children in attendance. In addition to holding the winged beauties, museum patrons were also invited to dress up in butterfly costumes and make butterfly-themed crafts.
For those who missed the grand opening, the Butterfly Pavilion will be at the museum until December 31st and costs $2 to check out. The exhibit will be open from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays.
