Butterfly Bungalow & Lorikeet Landing


In 2014, the Aquarium opened Butterfly Bungalow to critical acclaim. This seasonal display offers visitors the opportunity to interact with dozens of colorful, exotic butterflies in a natural setting. In 2015, the exhibit transformed to Lorikeet Landing, a similar immersive experience with tropical lorikeets. This alternating schedule will repeat in 2016-2017, with more new interactives planned for the following years.

Seasonal exhibits like Butterfly Bungalow / Lorikeet Landing bring excitement, diversity and fresh experiences to the Aquarium visit. Though the habitat structure is in place, sponsorship helps support operations and animal care, and funds development of new interactive visitor experiences for the coming years.

Summertime means peak visitation at the Aquarium. Butterfly Bungalow / Lorikeet Landing operates on an April-September schedule. Modest fees are charged for entry and for nectar purchases, and reviews from visitors are outstanding! Aquarium members receive free admission.

  • These alternating seasonal exhibits are hugely popular with the public, with approximately one-third of Aquarium visitors paying additional fees for the experience.

  • Visitors can purchase cups of nectar for feeding.

  • Both animal groups help teach important conservation messages about pollinators & habitat conservation.

Sponsorship of this exhibit has a term of five years. The sponsor will be recognized with appropriate signage at the exhibit for this term. Additionally, named recognition is provided on permanent donor displays at all three NC Aquariums.
