An indoor atrium houses both local and international species of butterflies in 80- to 85-degree gardens lush with flowers, koi fish, and quail.
The Butterfly Place
As visitors step into the balmy gardens of The Butterfly Place, they may feel as though they are “walking into a floating garden . . . as if they are being carried as well.” That was the experience of a Wicked Local writer who visited the seasonal indoor sanctuary, which houses both local butterflies and tropical species culled from around the world. As the butterflies freely wing about the sanctuary, koi fish swim through serene ponds along the winding pathway, and quail waddle and moonwalk through myriad species of colorful flora. Those who find that watching the butterflies sip nectar incites their own hunger can take a break at the outdoor picnic area and nibble on any snacks they may have brought along.

“Only worth the trip with the Groupon, it only takes about an hour, if you are willing to sit and enjoy, otherwise it's a 5 minute walk through the whole museum. ”
