“Our second visit....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

We recently took our family here because it had been about 5 years since we've been. The place hasn't changed much and honestly, I often wonder how they can stay in business. Our family of 4 was about $50. My daughter loves the butterfly exhibit and there are several other things there to keep them entertained. You probably won't spend more than an hour or so here. The butterfly exhibit is a little warm so dress accordingly. Wear bright colors so the butterflies will more likely land on you. A great place for pictures and some quietness from the strip. If you don't have a butterfly exhibit at a local museum, or have never been to a butterfly garden before, it's a must do.

“My 3rd visit to a Butterfly Palace or Butterfly Farm”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

We went to the Butterfly Palace last week & really enjoyed the visit. We are both seniors & we sent over 2 hours there. Both of us enjoy taking pictures. Of course, we probably deleted as many as we saved.

There are several things for the kids. I am sure they enjoyed the sarfari hats & magnifying glass they coulds use. There is a large gift shop. That is true almost anyplace you visit.

This was the 3rd butterfly place I have visited. I think they are so beautiful. I enjoyed the video on the monarch. It is amazing how they make the trip, It is amazing that any of the butterflies survive.

I think it is well worth your time & price of admission. We had a coupon, but1 get 1/2 off of the 2nd ticket.

“Better for those with young children”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

Enjoyed the main exhibit room - the butterflies were beautiful and it took about thirty minutes to view the room.

The other exhibits were geared to small children, a banyan tree room made of bungee cords, a school room type exhibit of lizards, a film on monarchs, and a mirror maze. I would estimate two thirds of the space in the facility was geared to gifts.

We will return with the grandkids someday.

All of the staff were very friendly.

“Tranquility”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

The Butterly avairy was wonderful to visit. It is quite and restful. They do not rush you through. We spent over an hour just sitting in the avairy and several more hours just wandering around looking at the exhibits, watching the 45 minute film on the migration of the Monarch butterflies and relaxing.

“Great for small children”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

My grandchildren 2 & 4 loved the butterflies landing on them. Being able to wear the furnished hats & binoculars & use the magnifying glass made it an adventure. They really enjoyed the maze of mirrors. We had to go through it twice. The reptile room was interesting to them. They enjoy learning about the different species. They enjoyed playing in the jungle room. More for young kids though.
