Temporary Closure Notice

Cambridge Butterfly Conservatory will be temporarily closed to the public beginning Wednesday, January 5th, 2022, as Ontario moves to a modified version of Step 2 of the provincial reopening plan.

Connect with us virtually on Facebook and Instagram for more fun and educational content.

Situated on a 107 acre site which includes the environmental sensitive Kossuth Bog, the 25,000 square foot facility includes a 10,800 square foot indoor tropical garden featuring 1000’s of free flying butterflies from all over the world, over 100 different varieties of tropical plants, waterfalls, streams, reflecting pools, tropical finches, Chinese painted quails and red-eared slider turtles.

The Conservatory opened on January 26, 2001 as Wings of Paradise Butterfly Conservatory and in 2010 changed its name to Cambridge Butterfly Conservatory to more accurately reflect the Butterfly Conservatory’s location and purpose.

Stroll among 1000’s of free flying butterflies in an indoor tropical garden. Witness butterflies as they emerge from their chrysalises. Then visit our two galleries with mounted displays of insects and butterflies. Cafe and gift store on site.
