To Do Sunday: All Aflutter

Butterfly Exhibit Opens in  New YorkAfter a steady diet of Nemo slush and flu-inspired vomit on the sidewalk, enjoy the warmth and startling beauty of the Butterfly Conservatory at the Museum of Natural History. The butterflies are kept in a large, airy room. When it’s your turn, you’ll enter a room gone silent, as everyone there hopes that one of the exotic beauties will land on one of their outstretched hands.

The American Museum of Natural History, Central Park at 79th Street, (212) 769-5100; open 10am to 8:45pm daily.
