Off Hwy 36—just 15 minutes from downtown Denver.
If it creeps, crawls, slithers, flies, wiggles or squirms, chances are you’ll find it here. Come for the butterflies. Then stay for the spiders, scorpions, millipedes, centipedes, horseshoe crabs, sea stars and walking sticks. Love to learn? We also offer youth education programming, volunteer opportunities and lifelong learning.
The Butterfly Pavilion combines science education with hands-on fun to teach visitors about invertebrates, science and conservation. Our interactive exhibits are geared primarily towards families with kids ages 2 to 12 years old, but people of all ages embrace the beauty and wonder of our tropical conservatory filled with 1,200 free-flying butterflies imported from around the globe.
Interacting with and viewing our extensive collection of live invertebrates can be an eye-opening experience for our visitors, and one that is both life changing and unique.
We are open seven days a week 9am–5pm with the last entrance at 4:15pm. Our prices are $7.95 for adults, $5.95 for seniors 65+, $4.95 for children (2–12) (*prices subject to change.) We are located just 15 minutes from downtown Denver at 6252 West 104th Avenue in Westminster. More information is available at www.butterflies.org or by calling 303-469-5441.
