While a bit pricy, it was amazing to see all the different butterflies. If you stand still they land on you so make sure you bring a camera. Located in the Botanical Gardens there is much to see. Be sure to ask about the horse and carriage rides.

I love going here. I can just sit for hours and meditate because it's so peaceful and serene. There are so many butterflies in a wide variety of sizes and colours. The interior is well laid out as a humid rainforest and the ambiance is accented by the water ways and waterfall. I think of all the attractions in Niagara... More

So many photo ops. Tons of butterflies. You also get to see the transformation process in work. There are feeding platters and they're friendly. They land on you and the kids and adults are all fascinated.

My husband loves butterflies so we always checkout butterfly attractions when traveling. I was so impressed that the botanical gardens are free but then shocked to learn the cost to enter the butterfly conservatory. Let me tell you, it was WELL worth the money! I can't believe how many butterflies we saw, more than I have seen anywhere else combined.... More

My 9 year old loves butterflies, and it was worth every penny to experience. Had a butterfly land on my head, my husband's shoulder and his foot. There were soooo many butterflies.

To be able to see so many of these lovely creatures in a tropical setting, is truly a gift. It is a learning experience for children, and the not so young, (but perhaps young at heart). The conservatory and the gardens are a wonderful way to spend an afternoon. Delightful.

Besides being a butterfly conservatory this is a horticultural college. The grounds are beautiful and the rose garden was fantastic. We took the horse drawn carriage ride and our guide was very personable and knowledgeable-well worth the fee for the carriage ride. There is a fee to see the butterflies but it costs nothing to view the gardens. Well worth... More

Butterflies are everywhere and conservatory is beautiful, but fees to get in are way too high. Had I known we would have been in and out in 15 minutes, I would have passed.

The Butterfly Conservatory is in the Botanical Gardens and both are worth the visit. The butterflies were beautiful and the gardens were well done.

Great place but you have to pay for parking now which I didn't have to the last time I visited. Looks like it is cash only, $5. Not much but I did see many cars turning around and looking for free parking. Can park for free about a half a km away by Niagara Glen.
