"Butterflies of the Philippines" Exhibit Opens in Cincinnati

The Krohn Conservatory Butterfly Show turns 20 this season! On Friday, April 3, 2015, the "Butterflies of the Philippines" will open and continue through June 21, 2015. Since 1996, Krohn Conservatory has been presenting this amazing exhibit of local and international species of butterflies that have delighted visitors of all ages, and over the years this show has become a family tradition as winter gives way to spring in Cincinnati.

This year’s exhibit features the colorful and exotic Butterflies of the Philippines, and they will preside over a majestic tribute to the marvelous Filipino culture.The showroom will be filled with butterflies soaring among bold displays that will immerse visitors in a sumptuous tropical environment. A large, dramatic mural of an erupting volcano and a wildly cascading waterfall will provide a striking backdrop for many tropical plants such as ornate orchids, brilliant bromeliads, delicate anthuriums and dramatic dracaenas.

Many exciting events have been planned throughout the 12 week Butterfly show to allow visitors to experience the free-soaring butterflies and to discover even more about the vibrant, engaging and gracious Filipino culture.

There will be something to delight everyone! Special programs will include: Photography Nights where photographers will have access during extended evening hours; all generations will enjoy the Family Nights; Pista sa Nayon: Philippine Heritage Day; and even a Filipino-style marketplace –– as well as many more family-fun events.
