Frequently Asked Questions

Are you open year-round?

Do I need to purchase tickets in advance?

Can I make a group reservation?

Are the exhibits outdoors? Is admission weather dependent?

Do you sell food or beverages? Can I eat at the Butterfly Place?

We do not sell food or beverages on-site. Food may not be consumed in the indoor garden area, since food might attract predators that could harm our butterflies.

The Butterfly Place does offer an outdoor picnic area, where there is a covered tent available from April through the end of the season in October. In addition, there are nearby places to go for coffee, lunch or ice cream.
