Butterfly Conservatory

Activities For Kids in Niagara Falls

Kids will love the Butterfly Conservatory!  This climate controlled greenhouse features over 2000 exotic butterflies and 60 different species. It is a self-guided walking tour which allows kids to walk among the butterflies — some even landing on their clothing. Note: The brighter the colors worn, the better the chance that butterflies will land on you.

Enjoy the hatching station in which this particular exhibit allows kids to learn about the life cycle of the butterfly. Take a look inside the Emergence window, where you may watch butterflies leave their pupae to prepare for flight.
