Sunny Weather Ramblings: Butterfly Conservatory

Cambridge Butterfly Conservatory

Back in June we took a family vacation.  One of our stops was the Cambridge Butterfly Conservatory.  If you’ve never been, you should go!  And take the kidlets — it’s a perfect way to spend an afternoon!

Flying and hiding everywhere you go inside the greenhouse

The moment you walk into the greenhouse, you’ll see butterflies.  Everywhere.


It’s probably one of the most beautiful greenhouse gardens I’ve ever seen.  And hands down the best butterfly conservatory we’ve seen (and we’ve been to 3 or 4).

Turtles in the pond

There are turtles, quails and other birds, and live bugs (like cockroaches and giant African land snails) to see.

Feeding Station

Be prepared to make a few “friends” as you walk through.  With over 1000 butterflies, some are bound to land on you which is so much fun!  Unless of course, you’re the 2 year old who turns out to be completely terrified of butterflies.  Yeesh…  Yeah, here he’s holding on tight because he’s afraid one might touch him.

Taking a break to take in the view

There’s also a station where you can compare different types of chrysalis and caterpillars.  That’s where we saw this little smarty-pants drying his wings on his own name card.

Clever little guy showing off!Overall, this is definitely a great place to visit!
