The Butterfly House, Aquarium, And Playground Complex In South Dakota Is The Stuff Of Childhood Dreams
Do you have a special child in your life, or consider yourself a big kid at heart? If so, you live in (or are visiting) the right place, as the Mount Rushmore State is full of magical places for children and families alike, including this impressive butterfly house, aquarium, and playground complex that is nothing short of magical:
Located in Sioux Falls is the impressive Butterly House and Aquarium and its on-site Sertoma Park!
On a mission to conserve the "vital building blocks of sea, sky, and land," the impressive Butterfly House & Aquarium experience begins with - you guessed it! - the butterfly exhibit that houses thousands of these majestic insects.
After seeing the butterflies from around the world, it is time to check out the Discovery Den and its hands-on Moon Jellyfish Life Cycle viewing area, interactive Butterfly Life Cycle, and Kids Corner.
What's an aquarium without, well, fish? The Butterfly House has those, too, complete with hundreds of species of fish spanning 20,000 gallons of water.

After visiting the exhibits, it is time to head outside to beautiful Sertoma Park, located steps away from the Butterfly House.
On a beautiful day, there is no better place than Sertoma Park, which has everything from picnic tables to walking, bike, and ski trails, and the South Dakota Game, Fish, and Parks Outdoor Campus.
Do you have kids? They are guaranteed to love the expansive playground!
Sertoma Park is open every day from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m.
