We love butterflies, so this place was a natural for us. Lush tropical setting and a variety of butterflies. Modest number of educational displays. We went as a couple, but this would be great for families, too.

This is like entering a tropical rainforest (along with the humidity-My husband couldn't stay long because of breathing problems) and the beauty all around was delightful. Hundreds of butterflies, parrots, flamingos, iquanas, koi fish, and cocoons amid gorgeous plants and flowers.
Much more than just butterflies. 2 very photogenic flamingos, 2 macaws and a very interesting insect, spider and arachnid set of displays.
Very friendly and helpful staff too.
It was humid and hot inside the main display enclosure so dress accordingly.
Combine 1-2 hours here...More
We visited on an excursion that included this stop with Butchart Gardens. This stop gives close encounters with many beautiful butterflies, so I would highly recommend it to anyone wanting a close look at them.
