Sertoma Butterfly House

Thank You! Your rating has been saved.

The Sertoma Butterfly House is a tropical exhibit of 900 or more free-flying butterflies in our "Flight Room." Butterflies are purchased weekly from butterfly farmers from around the world. A special window showcases our new arrivals as they await emergence. The "flight room" contains a waterfall and a fish pond with a fountain. Our facility also features a gift shop, and a children's reading room. The Marine Cove has the only touch pool in the Midwest. Visitors may touch sharks, stingrays, horseshoe crabs and sea stars. We have both fresh water aquariums and salt water aquariums, the largest selection of live corals in the Midwest and varieties of fish from sea horses to cichlids to clownfish and piranaha.

The completion of the Sertoma Butterfly House in January 2003 is actually the last phase in a series of projects to enhance Sertoma Park. In April of 2011, we officially opened the Marine Cove, an aquarium space of over 3500 gallons of salt and fresh water tank.

The Sertoma Butterfly House and Marine Cove is a service project of the Sioux Falls Noon Sertoma Club. The Sertoma Club is an international non-profit service organization. The name 'Sertoma' is derived from the words 'Service To Mankind.
