Where are we going today?

Are you excited to visit the LARGEST indoor butterfly pavilion in the entire USA? Well, just head to Scottsdale, Arizona and you'll be right there!

Butterfly Wonderland is, indeed, the largest indoor butterfly pavilion in America, and it's also where you can have a pretty amazing family day out - out of that hot Arizona sun.

Here, you will visit an amazing state of the art facility that includes a host of attractions to keep those kids entertained. There is a magnificent glass atrium where you can experience the perfect tropical rainforest habitat.

Here, THOUSANDS of butterflies will be flying around you - so walk slowly! These butterflies come from all over the world, so kids can learn about all the different species that there are, as well as about the different habitats across the planet.

Kids can also be face to face with live chrysalis as they emerge naturally into those beautiful, colorful butterflies that you see around you - it's nature at it's best!

Butterfly Wonderland also has an art theater where you can check out the impressive 3D movie "Flight of the Butterflies"

So why not spend the day in the cool Butterfly Wonderland, and see nature do it's thing right in front of your very eyes! Kids can learn about nature, habitats and wildlife, and have a great time at this record breaking Scottsdale attraction!

Let's get flying!

    We enjoyed the facility greatly. Every person we came in contact with there was helpful. The 3D movie was well prepared and educational. The theater was comfortable. The rain-forest type pavilion was amazing. Very relaxing with much to see. (I hope the videos come out.) The other displays were a great addition to our expectations. Bees, ants, spiders, & stingrays just added to the experience. We even enjoyed the Snack Bar/lunch room and the Gift Shop. (Got a little Xmas shopping done.) Well worth the money.

    Welcome to a beautiful land of butterflies! Be prepared to relax and watch a 3D movie of a butterfly named "Dana" Then into the live room of butterflies. Also, there is an exhibit free of admission into an aquarium room that has a live sting ray you can pet. We had a tranquil time and loved it!

    I am a member and can not explain how much I love spending time here. My kids love it, my mom was swarmed with butterflies when I took her, my rough and tumble neighbor loved it when I finally convinced him to bring his kids. Truly amazing for everyone.

    It was a nice experience, and we learned a few things while we were there. There just wasn't much to it overall, and I feel it was overpriced. Even if you took your sweet time to stroll through, you're done in about an hour or so. That includes the 20 minute 3-D movie. Quality was great, value not so much.

    Amazing. Don't go if you don't find nature exciting. I don't know what the complainers on here were expecting. No the butterflys don't do tricks on command like trained monkeys but they are beautiful to watch and if you're lucky they'll land on you. SO many different breeds you've never seen before. Yes I suppose $18 a person is steep but what places like this aren't a little pricey? Also Idk why people are surprised about snacks and drinks from the gift shop being expensive...have you ever been to a theme park, zoo, or even a movie theater? Skip...Read More

Skip the snacks and overpriced souvenirs and you'll be golden. I will definitely be going back and brining my little cousin. It's educational and exciting.
