Butterfly Conservatory in Niagara Falls
A visit to Niagara Falls isn't complete without a trip to the Butterfly Conservatory, a 11,000 sq. ft. climate-controlled sanctuary for dozens of different species of butterflies.
This exquisite attraction features over 2,000 colourful tropical butterflies floating freely among lush, exotic blossoms, and greenery. Enjoy this oasis and tropical paradise complete with over 2000 free-flying butterflies and magnificent plants.
The Butterfly Conservatory is located 9 kilometres (5.6 miles) north of Niagara Falls in the heart of the world-renowned Niagara Parks Botanical Gardens at 2405 Niagara Parkway, Niagara Falls.
Just outside of the conservatory, visitors can also meet some native butterflies in the outdoor Butterfly Garden, while enjoying the 80 acre Botanical Gardens.
There is a wide variety of foliage inside the conservatory for the butterflies to feed on. They always have a source of food with fruit plates so you can catch a glimpse of them feeding.
Butterflies often land on visitors much to the delight of the kids. They are literally everywhere so you need to be careful where you walk.
In the Emergence area you can watch as the butterflies make their way out of their chrysalides.
Don’t forget to visit the gorgeous gardens outside the conservatory which also attract many of the species of butterflies native to Ontario with plants such as the Butterfly Bush, Purple Coneflower, and Joe Pye Weed.
