"Butterflies Go Free!" Space for Life - Insectarium de Montréal Tip by brazwhazz

  These critters and many more await you
by brazwhazz

Every spring, for roughly 2 months (from late February to late April), the Botanical Garden presents its Papillons en liberte (Butterflies Go Free) exhibition.

If the Botanical Garden is worth a visit at any time, the butterfly exhibition makes it a must-see. The spectacle of hundreds of colourful butterflies flying all around you is a unique experience.

Along the way, you will come across informative signs (in both English and French) that teach you about the life of the butterflies and of the plants in the Botanical Garden.

The Botanical Garden is open Tuesdays to Sundays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Address: 4101 Sherbrooke Street East
Directions: The best way to get to the Botanical Garden is to take the green line metro and get off at Pie-IX station.
Phone: (514) 872-1400

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
