Thing you didn’t know about SoCal: the Butterfly Pavilion


If you love nature and butterflies, Butterfly Pavilion is a good place to go. It’s an outdoor exhibit, located right outside next to Natural History Museum in Los Angeles. However, it is a seasonal event that usually open from April to September every year. This year, It will open between April 12th – Sept 7th, from 10am to 5pm. It’s an exhibit where you will see about 30 native North American butterfly species flying in the pavilion. They will only allow you to explore for 30 minutes. Reservation occurs 30 minutes interval. You may reserve your ticket online or in person. Check this website out for more information.



Once I went inside, I was in awe.










Don’t forget to watch your steps, because the butterflies sometimes land on the ground. Also, please be careful with them if you try get them on you, especially their pretty wings.

One of my favorite moments there is witnessing one butterfly holding another butterfly with its tiny legs, as if the other one hurts its wings…or perhaps they’re mating?  Either way, it was astonishing.

The exhibit was small, so don’t expect anything big. The butterfly pavilion only sells among with Natural History Musuem – a combo ticket. Therefore, if you feel that your experience at the butterfly pavilion is too short for you, you can also go to the Natural History Museum right nearby. It opens 9:30 am – 5 pm daily. There is also California Science Center nearby that is always free, and it opens daily from 10:00 am – 5:00 pm. Parking is $10, CASH only.

Again, if you enjoy nature & butterflies, you won’t regret this! Till then, guess where will be my next stop this fall? check this out. Yikes!  I’ll be freaking out, but I’ll accept this challenge! It will open this fall. Go…if you dare! (;
