Butterflies are among the most beautiful insects in the world. Our Butterfly House gives visitors the chance to see and experience butterflies up close and personal. You will also be able to watch caterpillars go through the different stages of their life cycle and you may even be there at the moment a butterfly emerges from its chrysalis to join others in flight!

Guests will be able to feed a butterfly by holding a small sponge brush with juice on it and watch the butterfly up close as it drinks from the sponge!  What a great nature experience and photo opportunity!

Butterfly Feeding is a pre-paid $50.00 fee for up to 8 people per pod* per 20-minute time slot.

“Creating Camelot: The Kennedy Photography of Jacques Lowe,” features intimate, behind-the-scenes images of John F. Kennedy, his wife, Jacqueline, and their children, Caroline and John, taken by Kennedy’s personal photographer.

The original negatives of nearly all of the 70 images displayed in “Creating Camelot” were lost forever in the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. Lowe, who died in May 2001, had stored his negatives of more than 40,000 Kennedy photos in a World Trade Center bank vault.

The only existing images from the lost negatives were on Lowe’s contact sheets and prints, which fortunately had been stored in another New York City facility. The Newseum, working closely with the Lowe estate, digitally restored the images to museum quality for the exhibit.

The whaling industry drove the early American economy. By the early 1800s, it was one of the most profitable enterprises in the United States, second only to textiles. Whale products were so valuable that people made fortunes.  They also lost fortunes. Some lost their lives. While a life at sea seems like a great venture for some and adventure for others, whaling expeditions were dangerous.  The competition was fierce. The elements were harsh.  The journeys were long. The outcome of each voyage was unknown. Learn more about the men who sponsored these expeditions, the captains that manned the ships, the wives and children who sometimes accompanied them, and the men who signed on for these perilous jobs in search of the giants of the sea. See the ships that sailed, trace the fishing routes and find out why the whaling center moved from Nantucket to New Bedford and then to Provincetown. Local historian Dr. Michael Pregot packs a lot into this brief history of whaling. Permission to come on board.

Tickets: $10 nonmembers/ $5 members
