Butterfly Conservatory, Niagara Falls

4.7
#1 of 1,396 in Wildlife in Canada
Enter the world of colorful insects at Butterfly Conservatory, located just minutes from the world-famous waterfalls. Sheltering over 2,000 butterflies that fly freely through the lush vegetation, this modern insect zoo features a climate-controlled greenhouse, 200-seat theater, and a large gift shop. Most of the conservatory's butterflies come from farms in El Salvador, Costa Rica, Australia, and the Philippines. Special nets stretched along the conservatory's glass dome keep the fragile creatures from entangling and dying of hypothermia. Boost your chances that butterflies land on you by wearing brightly colored clothing, moving slowly, and dabbing some perfume just before entering. Put Butterfly Conservatory into our Niagara Falls online trip maker to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Niagara Falls.

  • This is definitely worth a visit when you are in Niagara Falls. At $16 per adult it is also excellent value considering everything in NF is overpriced. This is perfect for all ages and all mobility...  more »

  • Very beautiful! One of those places we would have never stopped at on my own because its not really "our thing", we went because it was included in a bundle package and we were certainly glad we did! Absolutely gorgeous and will definitely be back again! It's a little off the beaten path of the typical tourist area but worth it and there are some nice views along the way, also parking was very reasonable.
  • I ended up here because it was an addition to my "Journey behind the falls", it was actually way better than I expected! Beautiful foliage and stunning butterflies surrounding you at all times. Very warm inside, but there is an area for coats outside of the butterfly area! Loved it
