1 min read

September 28, 2000 Butterfly display cases Starting Sept. 29, the Museum of Natural History will give visitors a chance to bask in the beauty of a thousand butterflies. Specimens of every size, shape, and color from around the world will be on display.

“Beauty on the Wing: The Double Lives of Butterflies” provides an overview of butterfly basics, as well as a window onto some of the most fascinating butterfly findings of the past half-century.

The exhibition pays tribute to Vladimir Nabokov who, in the 1940s, curated the collection of Lepidoptera at Harvard’s Museum of Comparative Zoology.

Accompanying the exhibition will be a related series of lectures and classes.
