The 8,000 square foot Conservatory housing nearly 2,000 butterflies year round is the heart of the Sophia M. Sachs Butterfly House. This climate controlled space is where the "miracle of metamorphosis" takes places every day.

Our Native Butterfly Garden is full of host plants for caterpillars and nectar sources for butterflies. This is also where special events such as weddings and private rentals are held. The Exhibit Hall has on display some of our exotic invertebrates from around the world.
