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.

My family has been to this facility in Branson a few times. What keeps us coming back is the mirror maze and not the butterfly display. We keep hoping that the butterfly display will be better but it is still the same each time we visit. What is it missing??.......Butterflies! The numbers of butterflies compared to the room size is... More

I appreciate your feedback and we will use it as motivation to meet our guests expectations. We import 500-700 butterflies per week which means our exhibit has over 1,000 butterflies at all times so I am not sure why you have experienced a lack there of. We have around 40-60 different species at any given time. Just as in nature... More

I have been coming to Branson many years and had never been to the butterfly palace. Curiosity satisfied, but I wish I had our $50+ for family of 3 back (that was with a coupon). The mirror maze was our favorite. I guess I expected more butterfly variety or more activites. Younger kids might enjoy it more but it was... More

I am concerned about your feedback of our facility. We feel that one price for an all day admission to veiw over 1,000 live tropical butterflies, two educational videos, Banyan Tree maze, Mirror Maze and the Living Rainforest Science Center is a great value. The add-on activities craft table and face-painting yes, are a small add on fee no different... More

Unless you have a coupon or know a childwho loves butterflies, don't go here. I went as a date and there were so many screaming children that it was impossible to enjoy and the exhibits are not that impressive.

This weekend, I visited The Butterfly Palace with my son (8), my mom, and two nieces (7 and 9). I bought a Groupon deal, which made it a bit more affordable. It was still $50 for the 5 of us after buying the Groupon (for two adults and two children) and paying for the extra child. They enjoyed seeing the... More

I would say that full price is too high, but a lot of people were still paying to visit. We only went because of a Groupon for the whole family which made the price reasonable There isn't too much to see, so if you time it right, you can be in and out in about 1-2 hours. They have a... More
