A great place for all ages! Not only do you get to see the greenhouse with all the butterflies, but you get to help launch butterflies as they replenish their stock, enjoy a mirror maze, and experience their aquarium. The kids enjoyed it as well! Of course, like all other attractions in Branson, there's a great little gift shop, too.... More

The Butterfly Palace has hundreds of butterflies in a large enclosed area (my guess is ~1000 sq ft. There are also lots of flowers and greenery. Once you enter, you can walk around and see the butterflies, often they will land on you or another visitor (I have a picture of one on a lady's nose). This attraction is not... More

I thought this would be a room with plants and a few butterflies. I was very wrong. The enclosure is large and could accommodate several dozen people at once. It is full of tropical plants and trees. There are paths winding throughout the enclosure. I was concerned that they would be slippery with the moisture, but they are skid proof... More

I went here with my wife and 6 year old son. The building sits on a high bluff overlooking Branson below. You walk into the gift shop and pay your fees and can add and souvenirs you with or pick then up later. Going upstairs to the butterfly area is a neat walkway but once you go inside, the experience... More

Very family friendly. Old and young alike we're interested. Something for everyone. And the butterflies were beautiful and plentiful. We enjoyed it so much we returned a second day. If you have kids, they can release new butterflies which is a big hit.

Although this is a little costly, it goes for a good cause as it takes a lot to keep it going year round. A nice clean establishment with friendly staff. Be sure to check the times of release of butterflies each day as that is something you won't want to miss. Take time to go to the movies as they... More

Thank you for your review! We are so thankful you got the big picture of our facility! While we are a for profit business the money spent on butterfly pupae is helping farmers in the Rainforest earn a sustainable income and buy land to preserve the Rainforest. More

To be honest I didn't expect much in the beginning. We walked into a limited gift shop and a few levels of things to do. Still not expecting much. BUT, we got lost in a mirror maze and witnessed my two year old son walking into walls was funny and exciting for our whole family. (my son was okay) (we... More

We went to the Butterfly Palace after a friend had told us about it. We were impressed with the atmosphere and the various butterflies and rainforest environment that we experienced. The "Angel Mime" was a special attractioon during Christmas season, and our overall experience was very positive!

One of our grandchildren's favorite places to visit. Every time we go to Branson they want to go to The Butterfly Palace. Don't skip the movie before you go into the butterfly room. The short movie is very good. If you are lucky and are there at the right time you can feed the reptiles a cricket or two. Fun!!!
