The butterflies will remain in their 1,800 sq. ft. enclosure until September, so visitors will have ample opportunity to see the fluttering insects up close.

Open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. every day of the week, tickets for the Butterfly Bungalow are $3 per person. There is an additional fee for visitors planning to visit the aquarium through general admission.

Butterflies will be released by the aquarium’s animal care team at 11:30 a.m. April 20 through 22.
