We offer group visit reservation times every day from 9:00am to 4:15pm. We have educators in every exhibit to help interact with some of our animals and to answer your questions, therefore, we do not offer guided tours.  Each year we host hundreds of groups, from tourist from around the world to local business groups. We hope you choose Butterfly Pavilion as one of your fun group activities for family and friends.
