The Butterfly Greenhouse

Native butterfly exhibit and gardens | now open!

Immerse yourself in our butterfly exhibit – you’ll be surrounded by the native butterflies of Kentucky. Monarchs, painted ladies, several species of swallowtail 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 will feature over 50 different plants that have been chosen to attract, feed and provide habitat for butterflies.

Our season runs from June though the end of September – during which time our butterfly greenhouse will have housed over 5,000 butterflies. In September we will be doing a tag and release event to track our Monarchs as they migrate.
