Tucson Botanical Gardens is home to one of the best butterfly houses in the country. From October through May the Cox Butterfly & Orchid Pavilion will transform into a magical oasis filled with over 300 butterflies at a given time. All of the butterflies are shipped to Tucson Botanical Gardens in their pupae form and emerge in front of visitor’s eyes in the chrysalis exhibit, before being transferred into the greenhouse. A new shipment of pupae is received almost weekly making the butterfly variety diverse and ever-changing throughout the season!
