SCHENECTADY, N.Y. – An indoor butterfly house exhibit opens Saturday at the Museum of Innovation and Science.

The house will be populated by Monarchs, Black Swallowtails, Painted Ladies, and Red Admirals.

Opening day activities will also include planetarium shows, physics and nanotechnology demos, and a special hands-on activity in the Science Zone.

“We are pleased to start the New Year with butterflies, a fun way for visitors to explore science and nature during the cold winter months,” said miSci Executive Director Mac Sudduth. “This new exhibit and our extended hours during February school break represent the start of many new initiatives from the science center for the region this year.”

On Saturday the museum will be open from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m., as well as during the week of Feb. 18 through Feb. 23, and regular hour's noon to 5 p.m. on Sundays.
