Create an itinerary including Butterfly Wonderland
Surround yourself with some of the world's most popular and colorful insects at Butterfly Wonderland, where you can get an up-close, interactive look at the winged wonders. Wander the rainforest-inspired pavilion--one of the largest in the country--and you'll see thousands of butterflies flitting around. If you're lucky, you may even have one land on you for a quick rest. Don't miss the emergence gallery, displaying chrysalises in the process of metamorphosis. In addition to butterflies, the center has several other types of residents. Stop by the honeybee exhibits to see a cross-sectioned, working hive of the industrious creatures, or marvel at exotic fish at the aquarium that features denizens of the Amazon River. See Butterfly Wonderland and all Scottsdale has to offer by arranging your trip with our Scottsdale trip builder site.

  • Our grade-level attended a virtual field trip to Butterfly Wonderland. Planning and setting up the field trip with Autumn was incredibly easy and she was very prompt to respond to any questions we had. The field trip itself was incredible. My students were able to see butterflies up close thanks to the handy camera work from Vicky. Our tour guide, Charlie, was engaging and extremely knowledgeable about the different species of butterflies. The students loved talking with him and his excitement for nature conservation was truly inspiring. I would recommend a Butterfly Wonderland field trip to any educator!
  • This is a delayed review, forgot review when I went back in December 2021. Sister was in from out of state for Christmas. Since she absolutely loves butterflies we took her here as a surprise. My husband and I had not been there ourselves yet so didn't know what to expect. It did not disappoint. We all loved it and will definitely be back. The smile from ear to ear on my sister's face was priceless. This place is great for any age but please Remember to always look on the floor like they tell you or you can crush some of the beautiful butterflies resting. They also show a pretty cool short 3d movie
