Smithsonian Butterfly Pavillion

The Smithsonian's Butterfly Pavilion is a fee-based, live butterfly experience. Take a stroll among live butterflies and exotic plants! Located adjacent to Partners in Evolution, this tropical oasis offers groups a rare opportunity to get close to a variety of living butterflies from all over the world. Partners in Evolution is a free admission exploration into how insects and other animals have co-evolved with plants. Discover how natural selection has shaped animals and plants together through their ancient and persistent need to depend on, and defend themselves against one another. Want to see more butterflies and the plants they like? Visit the Butterfly Habitat Garden just east of the museum, indicated on the map by the green area along 9th street.
