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.
