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

Very unique experience, highly recommend!
Chantal R. · September 14, 2014
I went to the Butterfly Zoo with my daughter and two friends. We really enjoyed looking at the many different variety of butterflies from different places around the world. The staff was very knowledgeable and we learned alot. We saw some interesting caterpillars and witnessed a butterfly laying its eggs. It's not a place you can stay hours at, but definitely worth a visit if you're anywhere near the area. Make a point to combine it with something else you've got planned for the day! The butterflies are beautiful.
