STROLLER POLICY

Limited space and USDA containment requirements restrict our ability to have strollers or wagons in the Butterfly House, including the Tropical Conservatory. We strongly encourage the use of baby slings or carriers as alternatives to strollers, when visiting the Butterfly House.

If you require an accommodation, please consider using a smaller, lightweight “umbrella” stroller. The immersive nature of our exhibit areas do not easily accommodate oversize, side-by-side, double-seated, or jogging strollers.
