Wow! What a beautiful and peaceful place with over 50 species of butterflies and 20 species of exotic birds! We sat for awhile and many butterflies landed on us. The plants and waterfalls made it very tranquil!

Fairly small but you could easily spend an hour here. A conservatory with numerous butterflies small birds flying and running around you. Also two pink flamingos. The ticket is good all day so it's worth going back a second time. We found the activity level different at different times.

So many beautiful butterflies. We went here because we heard there was a/c and we wanted a place to cool down in the afternoon. The gift shop / entry area is cool, but the butterflies are in a green house type environment and it was quite warm (it's their environment). There were some a/c vents inside to keep the temp...

Spactacular color, peaceful places, and fabulous flowers . . . this is where you'll find it. Sit quietly on the a wrought iron butterfly chairs and watch the wing of wonder as they land on a shoulder, or feast from the flowering folage.

A great place to see thousands of butterflies and little birds and turtles that is very moderately priced.

This was a wonderful visit. Literally butterflies everywhere. We went earlier in the day and some of the butterflies were very still on the plants- perfect for photos. I wish we had stayed longer and just relaxed with the butterflies. They also have a great gift shop.
