This would be a good family activity with young children. There is a mirror maze, a fake frogs head you can put your head into to see what they see, and the butterfly aviary. We enjoyed seeing all the free flying butterflies, one even hitched a ride on my husbands shoulder the entire time.

We feel we got ripped off here. It was so overpriced for what it is. My family was expecting so much more from this place.

There was two of the staff that were extremely rude and short with my kids and my wife. It would have definitely been given 5 stars if it wasn't for the rudeness.

My father-in-law, husband, 12 year old niece, 12 year old daughter, 7 year old son, and I all went to the Butterfly Palace on Saturday. :) It was very busy, but still easy to get around. The palace itself is very pretty, and it is fun seeing all the butterflies and getting some beautiful pictures. There is also a documentary... More

Nikki, I just wanted to thank you for the amazing feedback! We hope you will visit again in the future! Keep in mind we do offer a 15-minute video on the butterfly life cycle as well that is typically more enjoyable to children! Thank you for visiting! Brittney Smith, General Manager More

Several of us went. It is well worth our time. I enjoyed this place. After we were there an hour, it seemed like just a few minutes. It's great if you like butterfly's.

the only other butterfly place I have to compare it to is the one at Como Park/Zoo in MN (which was free). It was better then that one. The butterfly room wasn't as big as I imaged, it didn't appear like their where 1,000 of them flying around. It was nice, I took some nice butterfly photos and one landed... More

We arrived as soon as it opened so it wasn't busy. Kids did the mirror maze 3 times! Watched the educational movies and the employees working in the reptile exhibit were very imformative. We enjoyed watching feeding time. The butterfly atrium is huge. Nice way to beat the heat.

This is our fifth time to visit the Butterfly Palace. The difference was that we took our granddaughter with us this time. She thought it was the best experience of our vacation.

I took our 5 year old daughter to the Butterfly Palace at about 3:30 in the afternoon. We were told that we could come back the next day for no charge because so many of the demonstrations were over. The butterfly atrium was neat. We loved seeing moths and butterflies that we don't normally get to see. My little one... More
