Houses, Farms and Other Places to See Butterflies

There are many ways in which you can ‘visit’ and see butterflies. There are popular butterfly houses which house live butterflies throughout most of the year. Typically these are tropical butterflies which thrive in ‘hothouse’ environments and usually have a long life. They are housed in a tropical environment which is temperature controlled and often has a breeding program in place to ‘grow’ their own stock. These places are sometimes referred to as butterfly farms or butterfly houses.
