Immerse yourself in the beauty of butterflies as these wonderful winged insects return to the Hilbert Conservatory following a one-year hiatus. We’ve transformed the indoor gardens into a tropical paradise to bring you butterflies in a way that you’ve never experienced them before!
The warm, aromatic indoor garden features 5,000 square feet of lush, tropical greenery. The 65-foot ceilings flood the space with light, and the mezzanine level provides a bird’s eye view of the glorious gardens below as well as stunning view of the natural beauty of the outdoor DeHaan Tiergarten. With its gleaming shape visible in the night sky, the Conservatory is an architectural complement to the downtown skyline.
Inside the Conservatory, look for the exotic palm trees, flowering plantscapes and a small fish pond. The blown glass windows along the entrance of the Conservatory, which were created by glass artist Dave McLary, offer a beautiful transition to the space while the center font by sculptor Dale Enochs provides the gentle sounds of flowing water.
Entry to this wonderful paradise is included with the price of your ticket.
