The “Grigore Antipa” Natural History Museum has officially opened the cultural “summer season,” revealing to the public the first events prepared for this summer. Starting on May 1 the museum will host the “Live tropical butterflies” exhibition organized in collaboration with the “House of Butterflies” and the Vulticulus Geography Society. Visitors will have the possibility of seeing over 30 species of exotic butterflies flying freely in the special greenhouse set up within the “Antipa” Museum’s garden, but they can also witness the “birth” of butterflies. The living insects are also presented through texts that offer information on the name of the specie, the country of origin, its biological and ecological preferences and so on. With a little care one can see the eggs, larvae and adults of the species presented. The exhibition can be visited from May 1 to July 31. Tickets cost RON 10 per child/student and RON 12 per adult/pensioner.
