I went with my daughter and 2&4 year old grandchildren, it was made clear there is no running or touching the butterflies. My grandsons could not have been more well behaved but as we were leaving, a butterfly landed on the back of my grandsons hand. He was thrilled but within seconds, an incredibly nasty employee was reprimanding him for... More

Awesome time had by all the Girl Scouts that made the trip from Salisbury MA to see the butterflies, birds and fish. So much life packed into such a beautiful though small space. I found my self amazed at one butterfly and how large it was - it didn't see to be real until I watched it move! The birds... More

Hi! Sylvia here from The Butterfly Place. Thank-you for the review! We love when scouts visit us and enjoy...sometimes the visit is a step to getting a badge. Good suggestion to plan another activity if you want to make a day of it. Average time people like is usually about one hour, and you can go in and out as... More

What a great find! We stopped by with our 3 month old and we were all fascinated with the butterflies! There was such serenity as we walked around admiring the butterflies flying around us. We can't wait to return with our little guy when he is old enough to take place in the scavenger hunt for all the butterflies :)

A friend and I visited on a cold, dreary March day. Used a Groupon so the fee was very reasonable. It was a lovely respite after a terrible winter. Warm in there and I loved it. Beautiful butterflies, flowers, colorful finches..I had been many years before so thought it was time to visit once again. Enjoyed the film on the... More

The butterfly place is a dream come true for butterfly lovers! The beautiful indoor garden hosts hundreds of butterflies along with several types of birds, koi pond, a frog, and a variety of plants, flowers, and trees. The butterflies fly freely and may even land on you! This is definitely the type of place you need to bring your camera.... More

We went to escape winter for a bit and enjoy some flowers and butterflies. They were absolutely lovely and just what we needed. It is not a large place, and not super cheap but I like it for an annual visit to escape winter. Great for families as well.

My wife and I visited The Butterfly Place with our two young grandchildren on a winter Saturday. It was pretty crowded with other families, so it was not the "escape" I expected. As soon as you walk through the door there is a gift shop with merchandise at all prices, low to high. For my taste the admission prices are... More

I took both of my granddaughters on separate occasions, with friends; and the girls, roughly 10 years old, loved the place. It is compact; but that way you get to see all the creatures. They have an excellent exhibit of the metamorphosis of the butterfly and a large selection of them. They also have some cute birds and Vietnamese Quail.... More

I really love how peaceful this place is. The staff know a lot about the butterflies and moths. There are little quails running around so be careful. If you are bringing children make sure they know to be gentle. They have a beautiful garden as well. If you get hot very easily make sure you are prepared. Otherwise, relax and... More

Beautiful butterflies but rather expensive - grandchildren (age 7 and 10) enjoyed it very much - 10 year old girl could have lasted well over an hour - seven year old lost attention at 45 minutes. Well kept -- professional to answer questions.
