Butterfly Pavilion

Butterfly Pavilion
Butterflies are taking flight at NHMLA! Get up close to beautiful butterflies in our new Butterfly Pavilion. This seasonal exhibit — located outside on the south side of the Museum — features more flight space, more resting spots, and more natural light. There will be hundreds of free-flying butterflies inside, and our awesome Gallery Interpreters who can explain why these animals are so special.

The Butterfly Pavilion showcases hundreds of butterflies and the plants that surround them, an interaction that has been refined over the course of millions of years. See up close how butterflies use their tubular mouth parts to obtain nectar and witness caterpillars feed on leaves and go through the process of their transformation into adults. Various butterflies are present at different points during the season and the plants will grow and change. This means that each visit to the Butterfly Pavilion can be a different experience!
