The place exceeded our expectations. Well designed and well maintained, with a modern aura about it that makes it far superior from the rather run-down Tropiquarium (at Servion, near Lausanne), for example. Nicely set up for family picnics, lovely mini zoo with domestic animals that the little ones can pet, and a shady playground which our 4 year old thoroughly... More

There are a lot of different butterflies but also many species from the tropical forest, from bats to fishes and night monkeys. You have to reserve at least two hours to visit the whole thing. There are informatives panels everywhere and it's well explained. But if you want to ask something else there's no staff to explain anything. The second... More

We had a good time, and my kids (11 and 5) love it. The exhibition is good and besides the butterflies you can see other animals. There are 4 main areas: -The butterfly part, which is really interesting and nice to walk on and take pictures. -A dark area, nocturama, where you can see animals like it is night. -A... More

I took my 4 year old daughter here. It was nice. They have more than just butterflies. I really liked the nocturnal animal enclosure as I have never been to a zoo with such an exhibit. I like the idea of showing nocturnal animals in the dark. There is also a small petting zoo with goats. Though, we didn't see... More

My boyfriend and me went there for first time, it was very exciting! Beautiful butterflies, nice rain forest and the jungle where you saw the birds was cool as well, i was a bit scared when this big bird walked after me all time but i still liked it. The noc place where bats were flying was a bit uncomfortable,... More

Go now and then to see too happy about the beauty of butterflies. If one takes the time we discover also other animals.If you're in the area, so it is worth visiting for sure.

It's a very nice place, especially for kids. The tickets are quite expensive (18 CHF for adult). The place itself is not very big, but still worth visiting. Papiliorama is lovely, all butterflies are beautiful. Jungle trip is not impressive. Personally I loved the nocturama the most. To see and feel how bats are flying just above your head or... More

Went there on a Monday, it was packed with kids (field trips) and families. Had a good time with my girlfriend, learned a few things (explanations are not too scientific, also interesting and educative for the kids). Lots of bats in the "Nocturama". There are a few feeding times in the afternoon (+/- 1pm onwards), make sure to plane your... More

The butterfly farm is a nice place to spend a couple of hours if the weather is not good. The attraction is comprised of 3 closures with tropical like weather and each is filled with beautiful butterflies. We were 2 adults and a 6 m/o baby which was mesmerized by the colorful butterflies.

I have visited Papilorama many times. The butterfly dome is really nice, and depending on the time of day, and the season, you see different numbers and types of butterflies. The night dome is very well done, and quite unique. The jungle trek, while also nice, is somehow less impressive and would benefit from having more free birds (parrots or... More
