Surround yourself with some of the world's most popular and colorful insects at Butterfly Wonderland, where you can get an up-close, interactive look at the winged wonders. Wander the rainforest-inspired pavilion--one of the largest in the country--and you'll see thousands of butterflies flitting around. If you're lucky, you may even have one land on you for a quick rest. Don't miss the emergence gallery, displaying chrysalises in the process of metamorphosis. In addition to butterflies, the center has several other types of residents. Stop by the honeybee exhibits to see a cross-sectioned, working hive of the industrious creatures, or marvel at exotic fish at the aquarium that features denizens of the Amazon River.

Butterfly Wonderland Reviews
A nice place to go next winter. The butterfly area will still be just as warm and humid, but it won't get to you as much then. It pretty cools to see the butterfly fly around. more »
This is a great find. Short educational 3D movie before you go into the enclosed garden. Walk through the abundance of beautiful butterflies at your own pace or bring a book and sit on a bench for... more »
Such a wonderful place. I was able to buy the tickets online so that saved us the time at the window. The movie they make everyone watch was truly amazing - I am glad I saw it. The staff is helpful and the grounds are beautiful. Loved all the glass artworks. Of course the butterflies are the star attraction. Such a great variety of plants and flowers.
Amazing...fun and educational visit for 2-3 hours. The giant sculpture of the caterpillar in the court yard is so adorable. The 3D movie, flight of the butterflies, is amazing. The wow feature is the display of various butterflies' chrysalis. If your timing is right, you can witness the emerging of the butterfly. And in the conservatory, during the warm sun, the butterflies flutter in abundance. Also, the staff is super friendly.
