Starting on February 22nd and ending on April 29th, you can go to Montreal's Botanical Garden to check out over 50 different species of butterflies. Most species are originallyfound in the United States, Costa Rica, El Salvador, the Philippines, Malaysia, and Tanzania, but thanks to our climate control enclosure, you and your family can see them right here in our city!

Be sure to check the weather beforehand and dress appropriately. You can drop by whenever you want during opening hours, but butterflies are most active in the morning. Just head on over to Pie-IX metro and you'll see some butterflies. Can't wait? Well, check some out right here.
