Butterflies spread their wings at miSci in Schenectady

SCHENECTADY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Families escaped cabin fever Saturday and stepped into the world of butterflies. A new exhibit at the Museum of Innovation and Science spread its wings this weekend.

Ever wished you could come closer to nature? Guests are flying into fun at miSci in Schenectady.

Families from all over the Capital Region came to see the new butterfly house at the Museum of Innovation and Science in Schenectady Saturday and everyone was excited.

The exhibit gave kids the chance to see hundreds of butterflies close up like never before.

It opened just in time for spring break and for that, parents were grateful.

“I wanted to do something different other than sledding or something, you know. Just something cool. So we came here and on the way she said ‘oh we’ve been here with school, we like it here!’ And I said oh perfect,” said Sarah Gates, visiting mother.

“It gets her up and moving around and playing with things. This is more active than just sitting around and watching a screen for a few hours. And it burns energy so she’ll take a nap,” said Patrick Henry, visiting father.

The butterfly house is open until April 22nd but miSci reps say there are plenty of other museum activities to check out this spring.
