This place was great! Once paid you can go in and out throughout the day - we went around twice. There are butterflies everywhere. You have to move around carefully to avoid standing on any and they do occasionally sit on you! There are also colourful birds and flamingos. Despite the intense humidity outside it was relatively cool inside so... More

a great place to admire the beauty of mother nature up front and close. enter the butterfly area and as soon as you step in butter flies seem to attack you if you happen to wear the right colored clothes which attract them to the flowers they like. My grandchildren, wife and I had a nice time watching our grandchildren... More

We visited because we had a buy one get one free coupon.....and I am SO glad we did. We went in thinking we would spend a few minutes and had a hard time leaving. Everywhere you look there are beautiful butterflies, birds, even some flamingos. Well worth a visit even if you think you aren't a 'butterfly/bird' person.

The display was amazing. The butterflies would fly right past you and sometimes land on people. Inside the conservatory can be a little warm in the summertime, but admission is good all day so you can step out into the gift shop and then re-enter to continue to explore.

The atrium is small but packed with tons of gorgeous butterflies! There are also flamingos, quail, finches, turtles, fish, and more! The artwork in the gift shop made from butterflies that die of natural causes (lifespan is about 10 days) is breathtaking.

Going into this place I had a vague idea of what it might be like, but it far surpassed my expectations. Walking into the conservatory was like opening your eyes in a dream. There were so many butterflies, moths, birds and beautiful plants. There was a good bit of pathway to walk without it feeling too crowded. We walked through... More

We loved it! Watching the butterflies fly around you and almost touch you was amazing! There were so many different types of butterflies everywhere. It was so cool! Plus there were beautiful little birds some flying around and some walking by your feet. You really have to watch your step!
