The Butterfly House Gift Shop Particulars
Aside from general Put-in-Bay Souvenirs, the Butterfly House Gift Shop sells handcrafted jewelry along with crystals and framed butterfly species. Education and interactive children’s gift make this special gift shop not to be missed on your Put-in-Bay Vacation.
The Butterfly House itself was opened to the public in 2004 to raving reviews. Butterflies from all over the world were collected and brought together to make this climate controlled house their home.
Among the species on display is the Dead Leaf Butterfly form Asis with stunning blue and orange colors on the topside but is cleverly disguised to appear as a leaf on the bottom. This combined with the ability to remain without motion makes it very hard for predators to see it.
During your tour, there are extensive descriptive charts that identify each of the species of Butterflies as you interact with them as close as nature allows.
