Butterfly Museum to Open Saturday in Teaneck

Restaurant, event space planned at Windsor Road center.

The long-awaited insect-themed museum and entertainment center on Windsor Road will open to the public Saturday. 

The center, called World of Wings, is set to include insect exhibits and a live butterfly atrium, project representatives have said at zoning board hearings. The public will get its first chance to visit the new town attraction at 11 a.m. Saturday, according to an announcement made Tuesday. 

In addition to live exhibits of insects and birds, the facility will include a restaurant, space for holding parties, a lizard area and virtual reality games.

The new museum will be open seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., according to the announcement. The atrium will close at 6 p.m. 

World of Wings took over the former Givaudan property, a Swiss fragrance company. The 5.8-acre site was vacant since 2009. 

The center is located at 1775 Windsor Road.

Not all places have Kosher food, bring your own. It's also Bergenfield people. Give the place a chance.

I recently attended World of Wings, and after reading some previous comments I would have to assume that some upgrades have been made. I personally had a great experience and I feel this facility is a great place for Family Fun. First thing we did upon arrival was visit the Butterfly Atrium. I was able to closely observe an exotic array of butterflies and moths, the staff were very well educated and super friendly, and a few of the butterflies landed on us so we had some great photo opportunities. The reptile and amphibian exhibits were great as well, our group had a chance to meet their bearded dragon, and a russian tortoise. For younger kids they had a lot of fun attractions including a bubble room, a make believe kitchen area, and an expansive soft play area on the second floor, great for younger children to play in. Also all of the children love the BOUNCE HOUSE room, they had multiple inflatable bounce castles, and a large inflatable slide. I highly recommend this as a destination for family fun, birthdays, or field trips. World of WIngs has fun for all ages, and there is so much to see and learn, you could easily plan to spend the majority of the day there. They also allowed our small group to order lunch to the Museum, and seated us in their lovely restaurant area for eating. -Amazing Facility [Clean, Well maintained, New looking] -Friendly and Knowledgeable Staff, great variety of education and fun!
