A Minneapolis-based exhibits company specializing in butterfly houses and Natural History exhibits, Outhouse delivers a state-of-the-art facility and an experience of a lifetime. Visitors can get up close and personal with more than 100 different types of butterflies from around the world.

Outhouse Exhibit Services, a full service exhibit design and fabrication house that specializes in Natural History exhibits, is pleased to announce its latest project, the Butterfly House at the Minnesota State Fair.

A brand new butterfly exhibit, featuring more than 100 different types of butterflies and moths from North, Central and South America, Africa and Southeast Asia, opens its doors for the first time at this year’s Minnesota State Fair.

The exhibit features a state-of-the-art Pupae Emergence Room, where fair-goers can witness adult butterflies emerging from their cocoons. In the butterfly flight area, visitors can get up close and personal with the butterflies. This area also includes butterfly murals, a working waterfall, and ample seating. In addition, this colorful exhibit will showcase local monarchs in every stage of life, as well as feature some of the most exotic butterflies ever flown in a public exhibit space.

Outhouse Exhibit Services provided the exhibit’s owner, Monarchs Forever, with a full service contract. This included everything from a USDA-approved, state-of-the-art containment facility to artistic embellishments, such as a giant butterfly with an 8-foot wing span and butterfly murals lining the butterfly’s flight area.

The exhibit is owned by David Bohlken of Monarchs Forever, and was designed and built by Outhouse Exhibit Services. It is located at the corner of Dan Patch and Underwood on the Minnesota State Fairgrounds.

This exhibit replaces the former State Fair butterfly exhibit, also owned and operated by David Bohlken.
