The gardens were gorgeous and well maintained. All of the staff were very enthusiastic and friendly. I wish we could have made it back to see some butterflies being born early in the morning.

It was pretty but thought a bit pricey for such a small place . It had a variety of butterflies and enformed workers .

This looks very unassuming especially as it is so close to a road and hotels but that is a positive. Guides so full of knowledge, butterflies being charged with drunk and disorderly...who would of guessed? Good photo opportunities and lovely if little garden. No regrets at all from the visit.

A great experience for Butterfly fans, So many different species, many of them landing on you. So many different sizes, colours, shapes to observe.

We went here on a trip but once you have been once you can go back for free. It is fascinating, beautiful and peaceful. Well worth a visit or 2!

This is a great place to spend an afternoon when the butterflies are "tired" (and to get out of the sun for a while). There is a bus stop very close to the Farm, making it very easy to get to. When you pay your entry fee they give you a pass to come in a second time.

This is a must stop after breakfast at Diana's Dutch Pancake's. Go early because there isn't much of a breeze in the enclosure and it gets steamy as the heat rises. Every color of butterfly imaginable and a nice tour with great information. Super nice people and nice facility. Watch the younger kids, that they are careful and respectful of... More

This is a nice hidden gem right near Palm Beach. With your visit they give you a return ticket to visit again. There are many butterflies to see and you can learn a lot from staff about the butterflies that are there. They have nurseries, and you can actually watch a butterfly develop.
