The Experience includes:
The butterflies will be jumping off the screen in our 3D theater! Come learn all about the life of a butterfly and what makes them so fascinating with our featured short-film, “Flight of the Butterflies.”
Butterfly Emergence Gallery
Feast your eyes on the largest emergence gallery in the country. You’ll be inches away from live chrysalis as they emerge naturally into beautiful butterflies and fly freely in the atrium.
America’s Largest Butterfly Pavilion
Step inside the largest indoor rainforest atrium in the United States. More than 3,000 butterflies from around the world flutter among the lush tropical plants and flowers, landing for just long enough to capture the perfect photograph. The flowers, trees and plants within the atrium have been chosen precisely for the butterfly species within.
Insects of the Desert
This engaging exhibit lets you explore many desert insects that are crawling all over Arizona. You’ll get up close view of scorpions, spiders, walking sticks and other unique creatures while they go about their daily activities.
Honey Bee Extravaganza
See the honeybees in action as they create their honey right before your eyes. These bees keep the flowers around Butterfly Wonderland pollinated. Don’t forget to spot the Queen Bee!
Rivers of the Amazon
Discover underwater treasures from the Amazon in our large, freshwater aquariums that house African Cichlids, Amazon Pacu fish and other colorful exotic fish. Mosey up to the touch tank and meet our friendly stingrays.
After the tour, join us at the Wandering Horse Buffet @ Talking Stick for a bite to eat. This is a separate event. Check calendar for separate registration.
