Went with others and should have gone alone as experiencing all the butterfly species and my desire to get photo's of as many as possible would require a longer stay. Very helpful staff on site and visited during a release which was interesting. Very enjoyable experience and one I likely will see again somewhere if not in Branson.

We were there on a sunday and they had live music in the butterfly area. A nice treat. We got to let go of the butterflies while we were there. It was not crowded. The butterflies were very pretty and there were plenty of them. The staff was very helpful and we got excellent service in all the areas. The... More

The Butterfly Palace is a great way to spend an hour or two. They open at 9:00 a.m., which is great if you are patiently waiting for warmer day temperatures. The science center area is small, but they do bring out a different animal each day for kids to touch and learn about. The Banyan Tree play area is small,... More

The staff here is friendly and knowledgeable. We were a little skeptical at first but we enjoyed sitting and watching the hundreds of butterflies. The photography opportunities were countless. We had several butterflies land on us during our couple of hours. We walked around the pathway several times finding new species every time. I would suggest before entering, find out... More

It's been several months since our visit & my daughter is still talking about all the butterflies. Taking the time to stop by this gem was one of the best choices of the day. Everyone had a great time, we learned a lot & look forward to going back.

We decided to visit the Butterfly Palace and found discount coupons on Groupon, which made each ticket about $11. We walked through the area with the reptiles and frogs but skipped the mirror maze and short movie. We went into the butterfly area and it was really neat to see all of the different butterflies flying all around. A few... More

There were hundreds of butterflies, so many we had to watch where we walked! It was so much fun, and the small area for amphibians and reptiles was a bonus.

This without a doubt was the highlight of our time in Branson. Folks, don't miss this. Especially if you have children. They have a great enclosure with hundreds of tropical/exotic butterflies, and they take great care of them. They even raise them from the chrysalis stage, and release them in the enclosure. If you are there at the right time,... More

Went on New Year's Day. Staff was friendly and helpful. They have a tropical room where you could look at lizards and frogs and a mirror maze on the first floor. Gift shop probably takes the majority of the space on the first floor. To get to the second floor, they have a ramp around the perimeter of the to... More

This is geared towards smaller kids 5-10 years old. They have a budgie maze and a area that butterflies free fly. You cannot touch the butterflies. Also there is a seriously creepy "human statue" in there that moves and is painted solid white...... Creepy at first. $30 for one child and one adult.
