Butterfly Wonderland in Scottsdale, Arizona is a one-of-a-kind experience and one of the best activities for families and visitors of all ages. It is the largest indoor butterfly pavilion in America, and should certainly top your list of “things to do in Arizona” whether you’re a tourist or a local.
This amazing state-of-the art facility includes a magnificent glass atrium that provides the ideal tropical rainforest habitat where thousands of butterflies from around the world fly freely; a state-of-the-art theater for viewing the impressive and educational Flight of the Butterflies 3D movie; interactive nature exhibits for children, “Rivers of the Amazon,” a gift shop and a café.
Butterfly Wonderland is situated within the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community, where reverence for the natural world is integral to the culture.
