We have an 18 month old that loves, loves, loves butterflies, and this place did not disappoint. The main room inside (translucent high roof, really great light) is filled with the most incredible butterflies... hundreds, flying everywhere and swarming around some bushes in particular. You could get up close to almost all and see the incredible variety in colours and... More

We checked out of our hotel early so we'd have a chance to check out the butterflies. As it were, we were too early, but the man on site allowed us to explore the wonder at our leisure.

Went yesterday with a friend. We really enjoyed taking pictures of as many different butterflies as possible. Really warm inside - I would not recommend on a hot summers day.

Loved it! Last time I was here a few years back, it was getting pretty run down. Now, it is amazing! Gorgeous plants, ponds, tortoises and of course the butterflies. Spent two hours. Totally worth the trip!

Amazing! Seeing the butterflys come out of their cocoon is really neat. It was well worth the money!
