Museum Gift Shops- Collectors and Butterfly

Make sure to stop by the Museum’s own Collectors and Butterfly Gift Shops for unique natural history, science and butterfly-themed items. What better spot to get your wings for the Pollinator Parade! Members receive a 10 percent discount on all purchases in the Museum Gift Shops.

Payment Options

The Museum does not have an ATM, so visitors are encouraged to bring cash if they would like to purchase items from festival vendors (as they may or may not offer other payment options).

Plant Sale purchases may be paid via cash, credit card or debit card from the Museum Collectors Shop or at a Cash Only register located adjacent to the Plant Sale.

This is one of our biggest plant sales of the year with more than 150 species and 2,500 plants to choose from (more than 10 times the selection of our regular plant sales). Many of the plants are rare and difficult to find and only made available at ButterflyFest and Earth Day.
