I thought the conservatory would be a little bigger. But it was very impressive with several different types of butterflies visible.

This is such a fun place to visit. Reasonable ticket price especially if you use the coupon from the coupon book. If you're fascinated with butterflies, you will luv this. I couldn't stop smiling while the butterflies flew all around me. It was awesome.

Beautiful butterflies all over the place. Several will probably land on you at some point. It was nice & cool inside. Good way to spend some time out of the sun and heat. Very relaxing environment.

My 81 year old Mother and I went to this place and it was great. The butterflies are everywhere. You just have to watch out for the tiny birds that run across the paths at break neck speeds. I was taking the pictures and was constantly worried about stepping on someone! The place is well worth the money. Look on... More

We stopped by with another couple and really enjoyed the visit. Lots of beautiful butterflies and birds to see!! Definitely worth the visit. Beware it's very warm and humid inside so be prepared for a "bad hair" day when you leave..LOL!!

This place is wonderful. Very relaxing. And the staff does an awesome job maintaining a pristine environment for the butterflies and other inhabitants of the conservatory. My children ages 7, 10, and 11 really enjoyed it!

So incredible! So many photo opportunities, and I was absolutely thrilled when a butterfly landed on my shoulder and hung out for a minute or so.
