We loved the wide variety of butterflies everywhere, and the flamingos added the perfect touch of wildlife. A great tour with the kids.

Very tranquil and serene. I recommend going closer to the evening as the crowds will be smaller. It’s a tiny space. Is not a full day activity. I silent 45 minutes in the sanctuary including the gift shop. They do offer discounts!

The front reminds me of a gift shop but when you enter the actual butterfly reserve it's like being transported to a fairyland. A meandering path takes you through the display, there are aslo some Flamingos and small dirs in the area. Worth the time...More

Wonderful place. The gift shop was full of great things, at a reasonable price. The butterflies were great and the flamingos were lovely.

This is near our hotel so we stopped in for a visit. It’s a very short walk through the butterfly exhibit but it is very beautiful and peaceful and you can sit and spend as much time as you want. There’s no tour per se...More

Unless you are butterfly enthusiast this place is not worth the money. $12.50 per person, it is hotter inside than it is outside and it literally takes 60 seconds to walk through the entire thing. I would not suggest this to anyone.

Its is one of my favorite places to visit. Been there twice. It is very quiet and the surrounding sound are so relaxing.

Great assortment of butterflies and birds. Well maintained and informative. It is on the southern end of duval, easily reached on the Duval Looper.
