Note:   Some Florida Butterfly exhibits are screened in areas.  They are dependent upon the weather.  During winter time Florida can experience frosts and the exhibits may display less butterflies during this time even in the southern part of the state.   Some exhibits can accomodate the cold weather.  It is something to be aware of.  I was disappointed when visiting a few exhibits a few years ago due to this.
