I went to a "Butterfly Conservatory" with members of the Mt. Jackson Garden Club. It's basically a flower-filled greenhouse in which butterflies have been released.

The exhibit lasted a week and was a fundraiser for a daycare program. It's a favorite with children. Nectar is available for attracting butterflies to sit on your fingers.
