One of my favorite annual events in Columbus is back.
Franklin Park Conservatory is once again inviting the public to take in the beauty of Blooms & Butterflies. This is the 28th year of the exhibition and it’s always a treat. Hundreds of colorful butterflies fly freely throughout the Pacific Island Water Garden, making for one majestic visit to the conservatory.
As you walk through this tropical paradise full of gorgeous blooms, you’ll see a variety of butterflies basking on plants and fluttering overhead. It really is one of the most joyful ways to spend an afternoon in Columbus, especially on snowy winter days.
The exhibition opened over the weekend and any children under 12 who visit on opening day will be able to make their own butterfly-inspired craft project. If you want to see the butterflies at their most active, visit on a bright sunny day. The clear light from the sun encourages these beautiful creatures to get out and about.
Butterflies & Blooms will be open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. from February 26 through May 30. When visiting Franklin Park Conservatory, there are a few things you should know before you go. The conservatory asks that patrons wear a mask while indoors.
