You’ll Want To Plan A Day Trip To Philadelphia’s Magical Butterfly House
Can you believe that it’s finally starting to feel like spring? After such a dull, chilly, and drab winter, Philadelphians could really use a splash of spring color. You can find that those vibrant hues in a brightly painted building up in Holmesburg. Philadelphia’s Insectarium and Butterfly Pavilion is one of the coolest places you’ll ever visit.
The Philadelphia Insectarium and Butterfly Pavilion is located off of I-95, at 8046 Frankford Ave.
You can't miss the beautiful building! It surely stands out in an otherwise plain neighborhood.
One of the reasons so many people visit is to see the Butterfly Pavilion, where fluttering beauties dance around you.

There are many different moth species that are beginning to emerge right now, including this beautiful Lady African Moon Moth.
Look out for these beautiful creatures when you visit.
Look around for the feeding stations - you're sure to spot a few butterflies and moths there.
The knowledgeable butterfly keepers here can tell you a little bit about each species.
The Insectarium offers a feeding station for people, too! Fuel up with coffee, tea, juice, and snacks at their cafe.
The Insectarium hosts conservation events all year long, including their "Milkweed for Monarchs" month in June.
