Butterflies & Blooms at Chicago Botanic Gardens

At Butterflies & Blooms, visitors can immerse themselves in a habitat filled with live butterflies.

Colorful species native to South America, Asia, North America, and Africa are featured, as well as those native to Illinois.

See nature’s palette revealed in the blue morphos, paper kites, starry crackers, buckeyes, and Julia longwings—just to name a few. Moths, including the African moon moth, make an appearance throughout the season as well.

The 2,800-square-foot mesh enclosure is located on the Regenstein Learning Campus.

Visitors of all ages can learn more about the life cycle and diversity of butterflies and moths and can also observe butterflies and moths emerging through a window into the pupa room.
