The Butterfly House at Norfolk Botanical Garden – Opens Father’s Day Weekend

Norfolk Botanical Garden Butterfly House

A great local attraction for everyone who loves butterflies…and who doesn’t love butterflies???

Norfolk Botanical Garden will open the doors of the Butterfly House for Summer 2023 on June 17th. Come walk through the enclosed structure and observe butterflies up-close as they fly throughout the house and land on their favorite nectar flowers.

A great learning experience for the kids where they have the opportunity to learn the habits and life cycles of these beautiful creatures. 

The Butterfly House is included with regular Garden admission and (as of June 17th) is open daily from 10am-7pm. When you’re done in the Butterfly House head over to the 2 acre Bristozw Butterfly Garden that includes a giant Butterfly Maze! This giant maze is in the shape of a butterfly and covers ½ an acre. It includes more than 1500 linear feet of pathways.
