Hundreds of beautiful butterflies from around the world are housed in Hershey Gardens Butterfly Atrium. The big tropical themed room lets guests and butterflies safely and comfortably interact at ease. Stands of fresh fruit and sponges soaked in Gatorade are set of for the butterflies to drink from throughout the atrium. The chrysalis cabinets are also a way to view part of the butterflies life cycle by letting guests view many different chrysalises. If you are lucky you may even get to see a butterfly in the cabinets that is emerging or drying its wings. The tropical oasis surrounding the butterflies contains a wide variety of plants including Cacao trees, Hawaiian Ti Plant, Plumeria tree, and many more. Open year round the Butterfly Atrium is a wonderful place for all ages to experience.
