Warm up this winter on a behind the scenes tour of Living Exhibits. Visit the pupae lab to see exotic chrysalids and cocoons from all over the world, learn about the farms which raise them and their journey to AMNH. Then find out about the biology and care of the Museum's butterflies on public display in the vivarium, which features up to 500 live, free-flying tropical beauties, with Director of Living Exhibits Hazel Davies and Exhibitions Assistant Patricia Kay.
