More than 1000 butterflies to see at the Galeries de la Capitale


The temporary aviary Bfly is back in Quebec for a second summer. More than 1000 butterflies in freedom await visitors from Friday.

After a first edition last year at the Fleur de Lys shopping center, the concept is moving to the Galeries de la Capitale. The family attraction will remain on site until mid-September.

The circuit consists of seven domes, four of which serve as a butterfly aviary and three as spaces for reception, the projection of a short animated film and a shop.

“Since a tropical climate is recreated inside the butterfly facilities, there is also a refreshing food offer”, specifies the press release.

A similar activity opened its doors at the Centropolis, in Laval, a few days ago. Visitors can learn more about the life cycle of the butterfly thanks to the course which is intended to be “interactive”, “sensory” and appealing to “the magic of dreams”.

Tickets are on sale at $6.95 for babies 1 to 2 years old and $12.95 for 3 years old and over as well as for adults. Children 0-11 months enter for free. More information at

Bfly is also known for its amusement center in Brossard, its line of children's jewelry and its collection of books and board games.< /p>
