Are strollers allowed in the building?

Not yet. When we have a larger space and the proper set-up to park strollers before entry to the butterfly house, we will be able to have strollers. At this time, our limited space and USDA requirements restrict our ability to have strollers in the building.

Will you stay open throughout the expansion?

We will be able to stay open throughout construction. Construction dates are yet to be determined, so stay tuned for updates!

I scheduled a group tour. When should I arrive?

Please arrive 5 minutes before the start of your tour.
