Explore the Magic Wings Butterfly House

$15+  .  Today, 10:00a - 5:00p

Walk through a rainforest as you're surrounded by 1000 tropical butterflies. You'll experience the beauty of nature in one of the largest butterfly houses in the world.

Magic Wings is a "total immersion" butterfly exhibit where guests walk through an indoor rainforest surrounded by 1000 tropical butterflies. One of the Museum of Life and Science's most popular attractions, Magic Wings is a thrill for visitors with a dramatic 35 foot tall conservatory and the Bayer Crop Science Insectarium. Magic Wings makes it possible to come into intimate contact with exotic butterfly species such as the radiant Blue Morpho or the huge, 5-inch wide Owl Butterfly, all in an indoor tropical environment. Magic Wings is one of the largest butterfly houses in the world and it's always 80 degrees (sweet for winter when it's cold and summer when it's really hot).
