Our grandsons, 6 and 4, loved it! The introductory presentation was well done. Area to view butterflies is spacious and includes opportunity to "feed" the butterflies. We'll definetly return.

It is a small place, but excelente for its purpose, to see a bunch of butterflies. And the owners are so lovely and you can buy a pulp to bring home and see your own butterfly born.

As a family travelling with four kids, we decided to go to Butterfly Kingdom. It was a small butterfly garden, but it was very nice, and we really enjoyed it. The kids wanted to go back already the next day!

Yes, it is, at least most of the area. It would still be good to have an umbrella as you pass from one covered spot to another.
