A great rainy day activity for families

Tips for Families

Don’t be confused, the Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium actually is located inside the U.S. Custom House, so be prepared to deal with a metal detector and possible bag search.

Pretty buggy!

Flag review

Tips for Families

Encourage your kids to interact with as much as possible. If they are fearful of any sort of bug, this is the perfect time to help them try to overcome that fear. If YOU are afraid of bugs try not to show it! Your small kids are watching and you don't want your fears to hinder them and their experiences!

Butterflies in Flight exhibit is the Insectarium's crowning glory!

Flag review

Tips for Families

The Insectarium and the Aquarium are close enough to walk to and visit in the same day but they are not situated next to each other. If you are going to go to both Audubon attractions, consider purchasing a combo pass to save money.

Insectarium is not so scary

Flag review

Tips for Families

This is in a federal building so you have to go through metal detectors. No pocket knives allowed. Also, wear bright blue the butterfiles seem to like that color.
