After years of planning and millions of dollars raised in fundraising, the Missoula Butterfly House and Insectarium opened this month.

With a tropical greenhouse filled with butterflies from around the world and an exhibit area featuring a wide array of insects, arachnids, millipedes, centipedes, and crustaceans, the Missoula Butterfly House and Insectarium provides a truly unique Montana experience.
