“we learned a lot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

this is a good place to take your children. Make sure you watch the short film before you start your visit. They also had some bugs that gave me the creeps... and were pretty amazing... but your young boys might be thrilled. Walking through enclosed area where the butterflies are is a little warm... but worth going through. There were many kinds of butterflies that would land, sometimes on you... so you can take lots of pictures. The visit here will take about a hour... maybe hour and a half. If you do not have children it might be something you might want to pass on unless you really like nature.. I would come back again, even though I did not bring any children. It was worth seeing. I also like the fact the they are an equal opportunity employer, hiring people with special needs. Or they are volunteers.. still I love that they are there to help us with our visit.

“Butterflies everywhere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013 via mobile

My toddler was obsessed with seeing butterflies so we thought this would be perfect! The butterflies were everywhere. We've been in another butterfly house, and those butterflies weren't shy and landed on you. At this one I had only one land on me briefly and one landed on my son briefly. That was disappointing. Other than that, it's a cool place to visit. We went on a bright sunny day that was warm, so we were sweating by the time we left. There's some fun things for the little ones to do and other bugs to look at while there as well. Pretty cool.

Just across the way is wonderful park. My toddler was extremely upset when it was time to leave.

“Very neat experience. Lots and Lots of Butterflies.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

Went to the Butterfly House, not expecting a whole lot. It was a cool location with many butterflies, more so than the zoo. There was an interesting short video on the butterfly life cycle, but outside of that, not a lot to do. kids would love this place.

“Like a walk through Fairyland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

The Sachs Butterfly House is a magical place where you feel you have just stepped into a Fairyland. There are not a huge number of different species of butterflies here, but it is still enchanting to see them fluttering around and resting on leaves, fruit and flowers. A perfect place to take 3-7 year old girls! The gift shop is right in line with that demographic!
