The greenhouse-style zoo is home to butterflies from New Guinea, Costa Rica, and Borneo, as well as to North American species that soar across the enclosed expanse. The tropical bugs flit from flower to flower on sunny days but remain fairly stationary—and thus more photogenic—on cloudy days. The facility is closed on rainy days. Admission for kids aged 12 and younger is $5; admission for adults is $9.

Newport Butterfly Farm

Named as a Best of Rhode Island 2011 attraction by Yankee magazine, Newport Butterfly Farm cultivates a tapestry of colorful flying creatures. Celebrating its 23rd summer, the farm's enclosure houses hundreds of different butterfly species from across the globe, including white monarchs, common buckeyes, and chinese yellow swallowtails. A variety of mounted butterflies is also available for purchase to decorate a home office or serve as a warning to moths fluttering around your home office. Open until Labor Day, the farm's outdoor enclosure is also sometimes visited by larger flying critters, including wild turkeys and hawks.

Customer Reviews

The young man (Mark? I believe?) was incredibly knowledgeable and quite personable, easy to speak with. It was quite clear the owner is very serious about the butterflies and their well being, and has instituted simple rules to follow to ensure their safety as well as an enjoyable visit into their world. There was a good variety of different species, and I walked away with a better understanding and respect for the winged beauties. I would certainly go back and bring a friend. See you next summer!
