Daily Butterfly Release Talk

John Watts leading a Butterfly Release at Texas Discovery Gardens

Inside the Rosine Smith Sammons Butterfly House and Insectarium

Join us Daily at Noon for a talk and butterfly release as we let newly-emerged butterflies out into the conservatory.

Enjoy the two-level butterfly house with hundreds of free-flying tropical butterflies. See more than 60 species of tropical plants. Looking for more than butterflies? In our lobby, we have rotating insect and arthropod displays. See eye-to-eye with scorpions, hissing cockroaches, pillbugs and tarantulas!
