Pay What You Wish Day at Philadelphia Insectarium & Butterfly Pavilion

Philadelphia Insectarium and Butterfly Pavilion hosted a Pay What You Wish Day from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

There are two floors of museum exhibits to explore, unique interactive experiences and the 7,000 square foot tropical butterfly pavilion.

Get up close and personal with the butterflies. Here's a tip: the museum says if you wear neon or bright colors, it's more likely the butterflies will land on you.
