It took me a Long time to get there but when I did, I took some grandkids and my mother! It was enjoyed equally by all ages! Handicapped accessible which is nice. Loved seeing all of the different butterflies and insects and the butterflies land on you!

The kids love to go here, but it only takes us a couple of hours to get through and see everything, so I save it for rainy days or days we don't have a lot of time to go somewhere else.

It is an expensive outing but has a number of great activities. Holding Rosie the tarantula, the butterlies, watching the bees are all great.

This is a lovely place for kids and adults. The butterflies are enchanting and Rosie the tarantula will tempt you to hold her. My kids have always enjoyed it. More recently I brought my 82 year old mother and it was the perfect amount of walking and exhibits.

It was a simple, comfortable and rather interesting visit. Kept our 3 yr. old fascinated for hours. Not boring for the adults for the 1st run-through and then comfortable to wait for the little ones.
