Event Navigation

Join us as we open our NEW Spring 2020 traveling exhibit, Amazing Butterflies!

Embark on a challenging journey teeming with friends and foes revealing the unusual relationship between caterpillars, butterflies, and their natural surroundings. Enter the interactive maze through the huge monarch caterpillar tunnel. Adventure through the leaves, learn how to move like a caterpillar, discover an ant that reaps the reward of an unusual friendship, then transform into a butterfly and take flight! Together, families will explore this interactive experience and learn the surprising challenges butterflies face every day. Become a caterpillar and find your way through a secret, wild world. As you navigate the terrain filled with challenges around every twist and turn, take on puzzles, games and exciting interactives. The brave can even take to the air and soar down the butterfly zip slide. You’ll discover fascinating facts about one of our planets’ most amazing life cycles. But beware, the maze includes dead ends, down which, lurks poisonous plants and predators waiting to pounce. Choose the right route, stamp your card along the way, and emerge as a beautiful butterfly.

Amazing Butterflies is generously sponsored by the Panhandle Gives Donors, Dr. and Mrs. Paul Pan, Mary Emeny, and Pride Home Center.

Amazing Butterflies will be on display at the DHDC from February 1st to May 17th.

A members-only preview will be held on Friday January 31st from 7:00-8:30 pm. Not a member? Join Today!
