We came from Largo, and this was on the list of to-dos, but, alas, it was out of business, apparently. The signs were painted over, and no one ever came to open the doors, even though the hours of operation sign was still up, and the gift shop was still stocked. Oh Well.

When our little grandchildren aged 1-12 come to visit, we always make this butterfly garden a stop. One can only tolerate and afford so much excitement at the theme parks This is a wonderful, calm and educational alternative experience for all of the children. The owners are involved, helpful and patient with their guests. We are treated to a really... More

Our Grandchildren, ages 5-11, enjoyed it very much. The film is very interesting and the whole experience is educational. The best part is releasing butterflies in the garden. The kids loved it.

If you live in the area it is a great little butterfly garden. The owner was very hands on while we were there and took us around and showed all the life cycle of the butterflies. We were there in time to release some butterflies into the garden. Nice side trip for the Homosassa wildlife park.

A feast for the eyes, for avid visitors of butterfly houses. From the moment you enter the driveway you are wisked away by the lovely larger than life paintings of butterflies gracing the facade of the Homosassa Butterfly House. The fully mature plantings from floor to ceiling along with the bench seating area made a visit so worthwhile after spening... More

We had a great time visiting! The 18-minute video presentation was very informative and quality was great for such a small attraction. Never knew I could learn so much in a one hour visit. Butterflies are beautiful, but I definitely have a better appreciation of everything they have to accomplish in such a short amount of time! We enjoyed the... More

We almost didn't go in when we pulled up in the parking lot. It wasn't as big as I expected. We decided to go in anyway. There was a very nice lady working but like the other reviewer mentioned there is only one lady working there. We went into the butterfly area which is basically a greenhouse. There were a... More

Went to Butterfly Attraction the other day with two young grandsons. The short movie in a nice theater was VERY well done - particularly at a level for children. The lady who walked us through the tour was very knowledgeable, though it was disconcerting that she was allso running the ticket desk and had to run away from us a... More

Although I am not really interested in butterflies, this is a good place to visit, especially with children. There are many species there.
