A beautiful spot to stop but not sure it was worth the price. It was lovely to have butterflies floating around and the caterpillar section was good to. But it was a small place with lots of people. You could be in and out within ten minutes. You could stay longer but it was very crowded when we went and... More

We had been here a couple of times in the past so knew what to expect. We were not disappointed, it's still great. Well done all of you and thanks for all your help.

was a pretty neat sanctuary to be able to see a lot of different species of butterflies flying around and seeing the different areas, where new butterflies are coming to life

I have never visited a butterfly sanctuary before but I can guarantee you that the experience was beautiful. The guide was super friendly and informative. I learned so much. The Hercules Moth was astounding in its size and the Ulysses was stunning with its irradecent wings. A definite must do.

The family had an amazing time at the butterfly sanctuary and we've got so many photos and great memories from our day. We arrived early on a rainy day and were a little disappointed as the cold weather kept the butterflies asleep or high up in the roof area. We spent an hour or so wondering around the cute town...

I had been always afraid of the face of the moth (thanks to the movie poster Silence of the Lamb). But when I first went into this Sanctuary I was amazed by the colorful creatures flying around me. We went on the guided tour which was absolutely fantastic, it's so informative and educating, it opened my eyes and mind to... More
