This is a fabulous activity that suits all ages. The trick is to take your time and really "soak up" the environment. We went on an overcast day with a light rain, and had a wonderful visit. We made sure to walk slowly and deliberately - there are butterflies everywhere! Keep your eyes peeled for truly magical photo and video opportunities. Once you've walked through the rainforest, you are then led to an exhibit all about the importance of butterflies, complete with specimens and information. This is actually part of the main museum experience. Give yourself the time you need, and you can also visit the main museum, with many other interesting and unique relics and displays.

The Butterfly Rainforest at the Florida Museum of Natural History is worth a trip to Gainesville. It's spectacular. Hundreds of butterflies - many different varieties within this lovely jungle-like setting. Beautiful plants and waterfalls. It's truly fantastic.

I took some friends to the Butterfly Rainforest because she is planting a Butterfly Friendly garden. The butterflies were abundant, colorful and the rainforest, itself, was not humid or hot. Very comfortable setting. They even had an attendant sitting by the pool to rescue the butterflies who fell in, so that the Koi or the turtle didn't have them as a snack. My friend was thrilled to be able to see all of this in one setting. I plan on bringing my grandchildren here. It is well worth the trip.

Lovely walk through. The attached museum is free so nice to have that to walk around as well as the $12 per person.
