Butterflies of the Nile at Krohn Conservatory
Get Tickets $10 adults; $7 children; free for ages 4 and under
The beauty and mystery of Ancient Egypt is descending on Cincinnati's Krohn Conservatory — or at least its butterflies are. Krohn has announced the theme for its super-popular annual butterfly show: Butterflies of the Nile. A description provided by Cincinnati Parks (which oversees Krohn) says the floral exhibit will be "specifically designed to show just how lush and inviting the gardens of ancient Egypt could be." Design elements have been lifted from the art found in Egyptian tombs and temples and call to mind imagery like "orchards, palms and fish ponds with lotus plants." This show requires a timed ticket; only 100 spots are available for each one-hour interval.
