Natural History Museum Butterfly Pavilion and Nature Gardens Reopen 

The Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County’s Butterfly Pavilion is back! The popular attraction and parts of NHM’s Downtown L.A. 3.5- acre Nature Gardens will open to the public for limited days and hours starting Thursday, March 18. 

This outdoor museum experience features up to thirty species of butterflies and caterpillars in a netted enclosure filled with native plants and natural light, and provides spacious pathways to safely connect with nature in the heart of L.A. 

The Museum will implement the same safety measures that were in place when the Pavilion was open in 2020, including limiting the number of people inside the pavilion to 10 visitors, requiring advance timed ticket reservations for the Pavilion and parking online, mandatory face coverings for staff and visitors two years and older, signage to enforce physical distancing and a one-way path through the Nature Gardens to the Pavilion. 

The Butterfly Pavilion will be open four days a week, Thursday to Sunday from 9:40 a.m. to 5 p.m., through September 6. Timed tickets for the Butterfly Pavilion and advance parking reservations will be released at 10 a.m. on Monday, March 8 for the following two-week period. Check the NHM website for updated public hours. Full details regarding ticketing and safety information may be found at NHM.ORG/butterflies

Butterfly Pavilion tickets are $6 and include Nature Garden access before timed entry to the Pavilion (free for members and invited community partners). Passes for NHM’s Car Park must be pre-paid (discounted to $6 and free for members and invited community partners) and will be sold online to avoid in-person transactions or handling of paper, and to be touchless in payment. Cash will be accepted onsite, but touchless transactions are preferred
