Niagara Parks Butterfly Conservatory, Niagara Falls

4.6
#1 of 726 in Wildlife in Canada
Enter the world of colorful insects at Niagara Parks 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.

  • There's nothing like watching butterfly soaring through the air. We fitted this visit before checking in and waiting for our friends, next time, we will plan a longer visit.  more »
  • It was a nice place to walk around, but you have to buy tickets to go into the butterfly building. Lots of grounds to walk and explore.  more »
  • This Conservatory is very well laid out. The video at the beginning of the visit is extremely instructive to listen to the end. Hundreds of butterflies fly everywhere and can be deposited on you.

Where to stay in Niagara Falls

The city bordering Canada's most famous attraction offers a wide range of accommodations, with competition keeping prices surprisingly low. You'll pay a premium for views of the falls, with most of the prime real estate right by the star attraction controlled by major international hotel chains. Most sit along Niagara Parkway, which fronts the river. If you're looking for something nearby but still affordable, check the options along Victoria Avenue--you won't have a view of the falls, but you'll be just minutes from the spectacular attraction.
