At Butterfly World you will view thousands of live butterflies from allover the world. Opened in 1988, it is the first showplace of its kind in the Western Hemisphere and largest butterfly educational and breeding facility in the world.

This exquisite Tropical Garden is encompassed by four large screened aviaries, a sanctuary for thousands of butterflies representing dozens of species. Inside you will find waterfalls, ponds filled with colorful fish, a flowering basket walk, cases of pupae with new butterflies emerging, breathtaking orchids and more live butterflies than have ever been assembled in one place in the U.S.

New to the gardens is a Hummingbird Aviary opened in March, 1996 as well as a suspension bridge spanning the lake. Our new aviary is home to Hummingbirds from Peru, Surinam, and the U.S.

Upon entering Butterfly World, visitors are offered self guided information which is available in German, French, Spanish as well as English. To make your visit more enjoyable, you will find tour guides in the gardens to help you with information and any questions that you might have. There are benches placed in lovely spots enticing one to sit and drink in the beauty.

Visitors will observe caterpillars munching away on their plants in the breeding laboratory, enjoy the international collection of insects and butterflies in the museum and stroll through the flowering vine walk and rose garden. Many South Florida butterflies can be seen fluttering in the extensive gardens because of a large variety of butterfly attracting plants.

To complete a visit, there is an outdoor cafe, plant shop and first rate gift shop where one can find the unusual and lovely take-home gifts.
