I have read some of the reviews and just don't understand the negative comments. We visited the Butterfly Palace last September (2007) and was the first place I wanted to go in Branson when we came back this October (2008). There is a very large abundance of butterflies and flowers in the rain forest plus a very nice display of reptiles in another room. This is a photographers dream world.
Pricey? Yes! However, everything is pricey in Branson and there are lots of place to get free discount coupons.
I know of no other place where you can view close up such a varitey of beautiful butterflies and Orchids.
I don't know when we will come back to Branson but when we do, The Butterfly Palace will be one of our first stops.
