Niagara Parks Butterfly Conservatory, Niagara Falls

4.6
#1 of 1,289 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. Put Niagara Parks Butterfly Conservatory into our Niagara Falls online trip maker to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Niagara Falls.

  • We took the WeGo bus out to the Conservatory. It was easy to get to and it was wonderful to visit. There are so many butterflies and plants. It's worth the time and money to go to the Conservatory.  more »
  • Spent a couple of hours in this beautiful attraction. So many butterflys and the plants are big and so well cared for as well. Perfect to give yourself a slower paced part of your day.  more »
