Have you ever wondered some tips for visiting a butterfly house? We went last year to the Butterfly House at Perry’s Cave and Family Fun Center on Put-In-Bay, Ohio. This particular house did not have native butterflies but some very exotic tropical species.

Tips For Visiting a Butterfly House

Dress for the Weather

If you visit a Butterfly House that is native to your area the temperature should be the same as outside. If you visit a Tropical Butterfly Garden then the temperature will be HOT!

Follow the Rules

Often times in a large greenhouse aka Butterfly House there’s a specified path area for you to walk without disturbing the wildlife.

You may or may NOT get landed on! Prepare your child for up close visits if they are fearful of “bugs”. Big Red wanted a butterfly to land on him SOOO badly that he stood still for almost 5 whole minutes! See that one fly by behind him!

Look but Don’t Touch

Butterflies are very delicate and can be damaged very easily. If you want to view them up close then bring a magnifying glass or a small pair of binoculars.

Bring your Camera

This is a great opportunity to capture some unique pictures of caterpillars, chrysalis, and butterflies that you won’t want to miss out on! Princess had to hold really still in order to take some pictures of the butterflies.
