One of the largest butterfly houses on the East Coast, Magic Wings Butterfly House features a 35-foot tall glass conservatory where guests of all ages can enjoy a total immersion experience surrounded by hundreds of tropical butterflies in a lush rainforest environment. One of the Museum’s most popular exhibits, Magic Wings is also home to the Insectarium, featuring a rare assortment of exotic insects and invertebrates from around the globe.
Committed to conservation
The Museum is committed to sourcing butterflies that are sustainably farmed using practices that support and preserve tropical rain forest environments and communities. Butterfly farming encourages the conservation of these natural habitats by providing an economic incentive and an alternative to clear cutting the land for development or other types of farming. Conserving pollinator habitats also preserves those spaces for the other plants and animals that live there.
