Exhibition - Orchids in Bloom

Tuesday, Apr 16, 2019 from 10:00am to 5:00pm


Enjoy a rare opportunity to get up close to a variety of colorful orchids from all over the world—including Central and South America and Asia—and take pictures as butterflies rest on the flowers.

“This year marks the third annual Orchids in Bloom program in Dancing Wings Butterfly Garden,” says Craig Sherwood, manager of grounds and live collections at The Strong. “Visitors to the garden love taking pictures of different orchids, and Orchids in Bloom allows for even more orchid varieties to be displayed such as Dendrobium and Phalaenopsis orchids. We look forward to museum guests and members enjoying this unique opportunity in The Strong’s butterfly garden.”

Dancing Wings Butterfly Garden is the only year-round, indoor butterfly garden in upstate New York and is home to hundreds of free-flying, tropical and native butterflies, as well as button quail, a chameleon, turtles, a tortoise, and a green aracari toucan.

Garden fees apply for Orchids in Bloom. Guests may purchase general museum admission plus butterfly garden tickets online or at the museum’s admissions desk. Presented in memory of Carol D. Simmons. Programs underwritten in part by Delta Air Lines, the official airline of The Strong.
