Cockrell Butterfly Center
The Cockrell Butterfly Center, housed in The Houston Museum of Natural Science , promises an experience like no other. An impressive array of over 1,500 butterflies from across the world call the tropical conservatory their home. The three-leveled glass enclosure is an enchanting rainforest, punctuated with fascinating flora and an alluring waterfall. Marvel at exotic species of the arthropod, Blue Morpho, Atlas Moth, Red Peacock, Owl Butterfly and Longwing, to name a few. Housing some of the largest and rarest specimens, the vibrant assortment paints a picture of paradise.
We went to the butterfly center during Spring break. We didn't know exactly what to expect, we thought we would make a quick walk thru and check it out, we ended up spending well over an hour in there.
It was very fascinating seeing all the
different species of butterflies.
The butterflies are flying all around you,
every size and color.
We were lucky enough to have some lite on us.
A great place to take kids, and anyone who is a lover of butterflies!
Defintely a place we would go to again!
I love the butterfly center. You have an up-close and personal encounter with many species of butterflies you wouldn't ordinarily see.
On display are butterflies hatching from the chrysalis. It's amazing to see the variety in the butterflies and in the chrysalises.
The butterfly center is connected to the Houston Museum of Natural Sciences, which is impressive by itself! Outside the butterfly center/museum entrance is a huge granite ball suspended on water. The Earth's continents are etched into it like a huge globe, and the kids love to spin it.
