Butterfly Wonderland in Scottsdale, Arizona is the largest butterfly pavilion in America. This indoor rainforest environment houses thousands of butterflies from all over the Globe. Walk amongst these graceful and beautiful creatures as they fly freely around the flowers, plants, and trees.  

The Butterfly Wonderland experience starts in their movie theater where you'll view "Flight of the Butterflies" short film in 3D. After the movie you'll be guided to the Butterfly Emergence Gallery where you'll witness hundreds of chrysalises being transformed right before your eyes. Next stop, The Conservatory. Take a walk around this 10,000 square foot atrium as thousands of butterflies circle and dance through the air. These butterflies are brought in from far away countries like Costa Rica, Malaysia, Ecuador, Thailand, and the Phillipines. 

Your Butterfly Wonderland experience would not be complete without also viewing their extravagant live ant and honey bee colonies. Protected behind glass you can watch harvester ants and honey bees go about their daily rituals, and routines. 

Finish off your day in the Rivers of the Amazon exhibit that includes an 18,000 gallon Touch Tank that allows you to touch different varieties of stingrays.

Butterflies are delicate and hardy at the same as you think of some of their migrations! Butterfly Wonderland sounds like an amazing place to visit in Scottsdale AZ.

Roger - It's really neat to be there and see the looks on the little kids faces as the butterflies land on them.

Tom - It's a little bit of a drive from Gilbert where I live but it's worth it.

I've never been.  My mother took my daughter and she freaked every time a butterfly landed on her.

Kathleen - All ages enjoy it from toddlers to retirees!

Gary - It is an excellent place for that!

Noah - I heard about it through a friend who had a daughter go there on a field trip last year otherwise I would have never known about it.

Mike - Freaked in an excited good way or an anxiety riddled bad way? 

Barbara-Jo - If it's similar to ours here than I bet it's just as fun!

Nicole, Butterfly Wonderland looks amazing.  You might enjoy Barbara Kingsolver's book, Flight Behavior.  It's about butterfly migration habits - more than I ever knew about the little guys!

I would love to visit Butterfly Wonderland.  It's pretty rare that I get to see butterflies.  I do see a lot of gypsy moths though, and some are truly extraordinary.

The bad one. Like, "Never ever bring me back there" kind of freaked.

Brian - It certainly is great for all ages!

Patricia - I will check that out Patricia! I love to read!

Chris - You don't get many butterflies? That's surprising. We get a lot of them even in this hot of a climate.

Mike - Oh boy! That's no good.
