Perfectly mimicking a lush, tropical ecosystem, Butterfly Rainforest is one of the main attractions of Florida Museum of Natural History. The large outdoor enclosure is adjacent to the main building and houses hundreds of butterflies from around the world, as well as tropical birds, fish, and turtles. Admire the free-flying butterflies as you wander the habitat, featuring trees, flowering plants, waterfalls, and a pond. You might have the pleasant surprise of a butterfly landing on you. The releases of newly-hatched butterflies occurs daily, weather permitting.

Attached to the FL museum of Natural History, this is a wonderful way for adults or families with children to spend a day.

Such a cute exhibit! I saw so many varying butterflies and the forage was very beautiful as well. It’s a little short but take your time walking through and see what kinds of critters you come across! I love the little birds in the pavilion as well as the flowing water.
Wow wow wow! Loved it! We don't have this in Hawaii...I was blown away by how massive it was. It had many things you could interact with and the staff was friendly. I would recommend doing everything ( $20 out of state) loved it will be back
