My husband and I live in Springfield, Missouri so we would frequently come down to Branson on days off. We were always looking to check out something new and one afternoon we ended up at the Butterfly Palace. It was a unique experience. They had little explorer hats and magnifying glasses for the kids to use and inspect the butterflies.... More

This is a great family venue. The Palace offers several attractions. There are lizards and frogs to observe. There is a fun mirror maze. The main attraction, as the name references, is the butterfly dome. You enter through several sets of double doors into a large dome containing hundreds of free flying butterflies. Every color. Every size. The butterflies literally... More

We found a great discount for this attraction so we decided to go. It was a good diversion for the kids, who especially loved the mirror maze. The butterflies were beautiful and there were so many varieties. But, this is something that my family would probably skip in the future.

Men came along dragging their feet. But even they liked it! Able to take close up pictures of the butterflies because they even landed on you! No additional money needed once you get in the place like so many other attractions (I.E. posed photos taken by staff) Take your time and enjoy the place! If you go early morning you... More

I have visited the Butterfly Palace twice, and although I have heard many bad things about this place, I love it! First you watch a short movie about butterflies, then you go into the butterfly room and enjoy the butterflies for as long as you like, then you can do the new jungle maze and mirror maze which are neat,...

This was awful. If you have ever been to other butterfly attractions, then you can understand why I am saying this. It was overpriced, you are paying for 2 kids attractions (mirror maze, and some other kind of rope jungle). There is no staff inside the exhibit except for someone at the door to ensure you are not leaving with... More

I am very concerned about your observation of our facility. Just to be clear the price of admission includes not only the Mirror maze and Banyan Tree but the Living Rainforest Science Center, Live Butterflies and two educational videos. I assure you we have plenty of staff and our plants are not suffering. The butterflies are well taken care of... More

Stop your hustle and bustle for a moment. Come to the Butterfly Palace and just relax. Let the butterflies surround you. Of course you must bring your camera and the children (all ages) will be thrilled. Try and count the various varieties. How many will land on hand or your head? Fun for every age.

This place a amazing and fun for everyone. We recently took our two little girls there while on vacation in Branson. Our one year old enjoyed it but our 2 & 1/2 year absolutely loved it. She is still talking about all the butterflies 2 weeks later! The mirror maze was a surprising addition also.

This place was absolutely fantastic for all ages. We are grown adults and found ourselves spending a couple of hours having a good time. The butterflies were in a tropical habitat and easy to watch. Each walk around brought different butterflies to behold. The staff was well educated and they entertained the children that were there. It was a marvelous... More
