Starting January 4th, 2011, the Montreal Insectarium will be embarking on a complete facelift to its permanent exhibition for the first time in twenty years. The museum will be closed to the general public for the duration of the work until early summer 2011.

The new exhibition “We Are the Insects” is a $1.2 million project on the cutting edge of entomological knowledge, looking inside the world of insects. Visitors of all ages will find answers to these questions as they explore the surprising, often unknown world of insects and come away with a whole new perspective on this fascinating universe.

While waiting for the new permanent exhibition to open at the Insectarium, the 14th edition of “Butterflies Go Free” will be taking wing from February 17th to April 25th, 2011 in the Botanical Garden's Main Exhibition Greenhouse.
