An Immersive, Family-Friendly Haven

The Butterfly House Unveils Nature’s Delicate Wonders for All

Walk through this immersive exhibit in a safe, family friendly environment with hundreds of live butterflies from all over the world. Get up close and personal with these amazing creatures and see their incredible colors and patterns – a few might even land on you!

The Butterfly House supports rainforest conservation projects around the world, and your support will help us achieve this for generations to come. Come visit us in beautiful Chicago, Illinois at Navy Pier and see this amazing exhibit in person!

Who We Support

Supporting both butterfly operations and the families dedicated to rainforest conservation is crucial for preserving wild rainforests and their native species. The butterflies you’ll see flying in our house come from families around the world who raise butterflies, and send us chrysalises or pupae that are timed to hatch within a few days of arrival. These families also help conserve rainforest environments where they are located, preventing deforestation and providing good jobs to local community members; initiatives that are very important to us.

For the past 30 yrs, El Bosque Nuevo has used 100% of their profits to purchase old-growth rainforest habitat around their operation for conservation.

They currently own and protect over 1,000 acres of some of the most important and bio-diverse rainforest habitat in Central America. Watch to hear their story below.
