“What a waste of time”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

This exhibit was part of the tour of The Natural Bridge of Virginia. I have been to other butterfly exhibits and this one was by far the worst one I had every gone to. First of all, there were very few butterflies. The exhibit was about the size of a standard sized bedroom in an apartment. The attendant working was very nice. The butterflies were very bland looking. I would not go back to this exhibit.

“Nothing. Useless!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

20 t0 40 butterflies in a warm place under soft lighting. Walk carefully else you will step on a butterfly.. so watch your feet. With kids no strollers are allowed.. better hold them for 10 min not more than that. Very small place and so disappointing. Sometimes in your local place you might see better than these.

“Small but nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

This is free, so there's no reason not to walk thru it. Children would definitely enjoy it. The butterflies are all around and will sit very still for you to view. I liked that it was small it made them easier to find and see. Some of these exhibits are so large that you can't really get a good look.

“Small, nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

The kids liked it. I worry about those poor butterflies sitting all over the path, but as long as you kept a weather eye, you could avoid them. Not a ton of varieties, but just another nice little addition to the place.
