Christmas and Holiday Traditions Around the World

A marvelous exhibition beginning in November and running through the entire month of December and part of January each year. It includes more than 40 trees and displays, over 300,000 lights both indoors and outdoors, choirs, rooftop reindeer, as well as the beloved Railway Garden.

This temporary, annual exhibition features thousands of tropical butterflies from Central and South America, Africa and Asia freely flying in the Tropical Conservatory. Experience butterflies close up and watch them emerge from their chrysalises right before your eyes.
