The Butterfly Greenhouse

Native butterfly exhibit and gardens | open daily 10am – 5pm

Immerse yourself in our butterfly exhibit – you’ll be surrounded by the native butterflies of Kentucky. Monarchs, Painted Ladies, several species of Swallowtails and moths will fly freely in our beautifully landscaped butterfly greenhouse. Continue exploring our outer gardens that surround the butterfly greenhouse – created to attract and feed wild butterflies – while learning the importance of the creation, preservation, and conservation of native butterfly habitats. 3,000 sq. ft of curated butterfly habitat features over 100 different plants that have been chosen to attract, feed, and provide a habitat for butterflies.

Our season runs from June to the beginning of October – during which time our butterfly greenhouse will have housed over 5,000 butterflies. In the fall, join us for our Monarch tag and release event to help researchers learn more about Monarch migration.

*the butterfly greenhouse is open to the elements, if it’s raining outside, it will be raining ‘inside’.
