Butterfly Magic: A Tropical Wonderland in Tucson!
October 1, 2017 @ 9:30 am - May 31, 2018 @ 3:00 pm
October through May
9:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. daily
Included with Gardens admission
This October, not only will we be unveiling our blockbuster exhibit, Origami in the Garden, but we will also see the return of Butterfly Magic to the Gardens’ Cox Butterfly and Orchid Pavilion! Always a favorite with first-time visitors and Garden Regulars alike, Butterfly Magic is a fully immersive experience that surrounds you with rare butterflies, tropical plants and orchids in bloom. Also on view is our Dart Frog Terrarium, an easily accessible interpretive display that insures the safety of our colorful, yet fragile, amphibians. Be sure to check out the Chrysalis Exhibit, a fascinating look into the metamorphic life of a butterfly. With a little patience, and luck, you may see a butterfly emerge from its chrysalis for the very first time! With a constantly changing and growing display, and new varieties of Butterflies being added regularly, Butterfly Magic is never the same experience twice!
