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.

We purchased two different sets of tickets on 2 separate groupon accounts. When we first got here the manager was going to make us pay again but once we explained the situation we we're let in. The area itself was very nice, lots of different species of butterflies and very pretty. However the area was very small. There were about... More

If you can tolerate the humidity and parents who are not mindful all the time ( the latter not always in attendance) but LOVE the beauty of wings aloft and sometimes setting on your shoulder or an extension of it, then the wonder and bliss of this place is food for your soul. The type of butterflies differ from time... More

The place is small. And I mean SMALL! There is one room covered with glass roof where the butterflies and a couple of white little birds coexist. Don't remember how much I paid the entrance fee (one can find it on their website) but I remember the feeling that I overpaid. There are also few rooms with dusty glass display... More

This is amazing place to visit during cold winter days... You would dive into the summer time with many kind of butterflies, parrots and other birds... Chill music will relax you and place in good mood... Place is not too big, so it may happened to be crowdy... It is about 80F inside and about 90% humidity - so be... More

The name says it all. Lots of other birds also live in with the butterfly's. Lots of flowers and trees make this a great place to just sit on one of the stone benches and take in God's beauty. The people working there are very nice and helpful. Small but a great quality activity for all ages at a very... More

This is a wonderful place to visit especially with children. It's not everyday that you can enter a space where butterflies fly around you and land on your finger or shoulders. The variety is a wonder to observe.

The butterflies are lovely and there are lots and lots of them. The educational section is great, but might not be interesting for young and/or active kids. The Butterfly Place is small, so on a busy weekend, it's crowded and loud. It's also quite warm, which is necessary for the butterflies, but dress accordingly if you don't like being hot.... More

I hosted my daughter's birthday here. They were very friendly and helpful. They supplied us with cups, plates, tablecloths, and a dining area. The staff were wonderful and the cost was very fair. I would definitely use them again.
