Amid the urban sprawl, something beautiful has bloomed in Faust Park..
Sophia M. Sachs Butterfly House is a children's book come-to-life with iridescent butterflies swooping and careening in the Conservatory Garden's Crystal Palace. It's as if Robin William's colorful personalities morphed into exotic plant life, flowers, and (thousands of) butterflies found inside this butterfly-shaped conservatory.
The Butterfly House is one of the best spots for a family on the weekend; children will shriek with pleasure from the butterflies in free flight--there's nothing between you and the species. Outside the conservatory, children investigate (by crawling through) a 30-foot caterpillar's body that twists and turns in the middle of a garden's sweet nectar plants.
Exhibits, films, shops, and learning labs embrace pedagogy so you can appreciate the lifecycle of the creatures that represent freedom. Sit in on a how-to, then groom your backyard so you, too, can witness your own small-scale Butterfly House.
Breathtaking. You are amazed when you walk in the door to the section the butterflies are actually in, it's beautiful and the butterflies are everywhere. It is very humid inside of it, cameras may fog up. Movie about butterflies runs throughout the day and is very interesting. Outside butterfly garden is now open also. Great giftshop. Usually live insects on view as well. Kids & adults love this place. Located in Faust Park which also has great indoor carousel and more.
