The annual Butterflies Are Blooming exhibition at Frederick Meijer Gardens is the largest temporary tropical butterfly exhibition in the United States. Tropical butterflies from around the world fly freely in the Lena Meijer Tropical Conservatory every March and April.
We’ve been going to the butterfly exhibit every year for the last 6-7 years. It’s always a lot of fun and we really enjoy taking pictures of all the different butterflies on display. Make sure you dress for the warm humid weather though… you’ll get hot and sweaty pretty quickly.
Julian had a great time running around looking at everything. He was so busy and we spent most of our time chasing him around. He was going around telling the kids “don’t touch” (because we constantly tell that to him) and trying to make friends. When the parents would walk down the pathway with their kids, Julian would say “wait, wait, wait for me”. I even caught him holding onto a little girls hand, it was so cute <3 He loves other kids so much and being born during the first few years of COVID-19, he hasn’t had much time to spend socializing with other kids. He’s so curious, opinionated and on the go all the time.
Anyways, we had a great time. I hope you enjoy my pictures below. Please visit the Butterflies are Blooming website for more information about the scheduled events happening through March to April.
