Walk Through a Living Butterfly Habitat
Enter a stunning, three-story glass structure built around a 50-foot waterfall! This simulated, tropical rainforest is filled with exotic plants and hundreds of gorgeous, living butterflies. These beautiful, delicate creatures, imported from butterfly farms around the world, will delight you as they flutter through the vegetation, stop to sip nectar or fruit juices, and occasionally alight on lucky visitors.
Continue downstairs to the “Insects and Us” section, where you’ll learn about what entomologists do for a living, as well as beekeeping, butterfly gardening, mosquito control, and – gulp! – insects as food! Before exiting, those with toddlers in tow will want to stop off at the “Land of Beeyond” to do a puzzle or two, read an insect-themed storybook, or play in the giant beehive.
