Niagara Parks Butterfly Conservatory, Niagara Falls

(4.6/5 based on 4,000+ reviews on the web)
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. Using our custom trip planner, Niagara Falls attractions like Niagara Parks Butterfly Conservatory can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
