“Beautiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

This is a must see in the Denver area. It was $16.50 to enter but worth the admission. There are numerous types of butterflies flying around you as you walk through the rain forest pavilion. Be sure to take your camera!!!

“Loved the bugs!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

This is a great place for adults as well as kids. Lots to learn, see and do. Great quick escape to the tropics on a cold winter day! If you don't have small children go when school is in session and make sure it's not a holiday otherwise this small building is easily overrun with hordes of chattering, screaming little people and you can't focus on the beauty and serenity it offers.

“Fun Day Trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

This venue is located next to restaurants, outdoor mall, movie/imax theater, and Dave and Busters. The Butterfly Pavilion has a butterfly exhibit, insect exhibit, ocean exhibit, and now a new forest indoor exhibit and indoor playground for 5 and under. All the exhibits are interactive. There is even a story time inside the butterfly exhibit. There is also a beautiful outdoor trail that you can take from the Butterfly Pavilion to the Westin Hotel. It's an easy path with lots to see. Take the day to explore the area it will make for a super fun day,

“Great place to visit especially with kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

This is a wonderful place to learn and have fun. The butterfly room is excellent with so many to look at and enjoy. The staff is great and available for answering questions. They also have a great play room for kids and a touch pool with starfish, etc. It is great for a rainy day, cold day or just any day to visit, enjoy and learn.

It's also great for photo taking in the butterfly room.

“The World of Butterflys”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

An incredible learning experience for kids and adults as well, about the stages of a butterfly's life, insects and snakes and spiders too. They have not only the exhibits but experts to explain what you don't understand. Well worth a morning or afternoon of education on butterflies, etc. (Try to arrive just prior to their morning release of new butterflies.)
