You’ll Want To Plan A Day Trip To Connecticut’s Magical Butterfly House

Butterflies are truly magical creatures. We sometimes catch a glimpse of them in our own backyards, but the sighting is usually fleeting and leaves us longing for more. Luckily right in the center of Connecticut, we have a place where we can go to see butterflies every day. It is a magical space where we can visit and view these creatures as they flutter and fly.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

The Butterfly Encounter is open Tuesdays through Fridays from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. and on weekends and holidays from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The exhibit does require an add-on ticket in addition to the general admission to the Connecticut Science Center.
