Although small, this is a well kept facility with many butterflies. Go on a sunny day so that the butterflies are active. Lots of different ones to see and if you’re lucky one may land on you!

We stopped here as part of our Cape Cod adventures. My son loves butterflies (age 7). It’s a lovely little spot. We found it easily and although small, it’s fun and educational. We enjoyed it!

Went in and made a quick look around. Very tired place. Location is tricky to find. Hope they can upgrade somehow.

Not too far off the beaten path in Bourne, MA is a wonderful butterfly house. Dozens of colorful and delicate creatures fly freely around as you wander through the flower-filled pathways inside the butterfly house. Take a seat on one of the benches and let...More

I took my 13 year old granddaughter to see the butterflies last summer. She and I totally enjoyed the experience and were in no hurry to leave. All those pictures of the life cycle of the butterfly in the science book came to life for...More

I've stopped here the past three or four years while staying on the Cape. Being with the butterflies, especially on sunny days when they're more apt to fly and even alight on your arm or back, is always a special experience. There's a small bench...More
