Purdy Butterfly House

Purdy Butterfly House

One of the coolest things to see at the acclaimed Huntsville Botanical Garden is the Purdy Butterfly House, a beautiful showcase of Alabama nature. This seasonal attraction is open May through September, so if you want to experience it, plan your trip accordingly.

You’ll find 12 gorgeous native species of vibrant butterflies, along with flora- and fauna-related sights such as turtles, pond sliders, buttonquail, sculptures and beautiful blooming displays. Local experts guide visitors through the Butterfly House and answer any questions curious minds can muster.

Children of all ages will enjoy themed crafts and activities, and adults will have a blast experiencing the largest open-air butterfly house in the country!
