Take a mini vacation to the tropics for a day at Texas Discovery Gardens.
Stroll through our tropical butterfly house, which is temperature controlled to replicate a rainforest. Pick up your special passport at the front desk and “visit” the countries where we get our butterflies (including the Philippines, Costa Rica, Colombia, and more). We’ll stamp your passport at each table as you enjoy tropical and cultural themed activities!
Go eye-to-eye with arthropods at our lobby insect displays, enjoy insect and flower crafts, and dance to island music. Explore tropical cultures and enjoy festive snacks and drinks. The first 300 visitors get colorful leis, and we encourage tropical dress. There will be the daily butterfly talk at noon featuring many colorful tropical butterflies. New in 2013! We’ll have our first shipment of birdwing butterflies from the Philippines. They arrive a week prior, so the butterflies will still be in their chrysalises, but they’re still quite a sight!
This will be your first chance to view the newest art exhibit in our Discovery Gallery, featuring talented young gardeners/artists/students at S.S. Conner Elementary School!
Admission is $8/adults, $6/seniors and $4/children ages 3-11.
