Visit the Butterfly House
Butterfly HouseMore than a thousand live tropical butterflies fly freely in the glass conservatory at the Sophia M. Sachs Butterfly House. Watch a butterfly emerge from a chrysalis right before your eyes, marvel at our insect collection on display in Small Wonders, or go outside and visit native and migrating species in the Native Butterfly Garden. Take a class, bring a field trip, shop, or plan a private event.


Whatever your age, you'll enjoy a visit to the Butterfly House, where wonder takes flight!
