Butterfly Wonderland takes flight as one of the newest attractions in the Valley with a highly innovative, indoor rainforest environment featuring the largest butterfly pavilion in America.

You’ll be welcomed into a magnificent, lush, rainforest environment where thousands of butterflies from around the world fly freely, alighting on fragrant flowering plants and, quite possibly, on a friendly visitor’s shoulder or finger.

It is a particular point of pride for the location of Butterfly Wonderland to be within the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community, where reverence for the natural world is so integral to the culture


Visitors will embark on a journey through the life of a butterfly as they wander through extraordinarily entertaining, educational and interactive exhibits leading up to an incredible experience — walking among thousands of the most amazing species of butterflies in the world. Wonderfully diverse in size, shape and color, butterflies can be found in most places on earth, from the barrens of the sub arctic zones to the steaming jungles of the tropics to backyard plots in our most populated cities.

Butterfly Wonderland will feature the following Exhibition Facilities:

Butterfly Theater:
Showing the latest 3-D technology films where the visitors’ senses will be exposed to nature related subjects. An educational experience explaining what a butterfly is and showing their life cycle story, migration, feeding, reproduction, and the enormous variety as it exists in nature.

Chrysalis Labaratory:
Featuring large windows open for public viewing of butterflies emerging out of their cocoons.

Butterfly Rainforest:
A 10,000 square foot rainforest butterfly atrium with thousands of butterflies of a hundred different types brought to Scottsdale from all over the world from countries such as Costa Rica and the Philippines. The exhibit will include waterfalls, Koi fish, and unique flowering plants and trees on which the butterflies feed on their nectar.
