Such a beautiful place! I’d recommend wearing bright colors and maybe rubbing a little fresh orange on yourself to attract the butterflies. It’s so peaceful and gorgeous inside but it can get crowded and a little humid so be prepared. I’d definitely go back!!
When visiting the Houston Museum of Natural Science, take the opportunity to immerse yourself in the world of the butterflies and insects at the Cockrell Butterfly Center and Brown Hall of Entomology. The entrance ticket admits you to both exhibits where you can see both live and preserved specimens, and learn about them with interactive games and displays. Explore a rain forest environment with a 3-floor butterfly habitat, get a close look at a range of insects, and visit a play area for kids.
Located in the Houston History Museum is the Cockrell Butterfly Center. What a fantastic and relaxing experience for all ages your and old! Just walking around sitting the butterfly's had such a calming and relaxing effect. I don't about 45 minutes there and easily could have stayed longer. It's included in the price of admission and sell worth it!
I was expecting more variety of butterflies but it was pretty good. The environment is nice.
We went real early. Not many people there. One employee came and asked if we wanted to watch him release butterflies, we did he was so informative. Beautiful place to visit.
