Our library has passes so we visited on Columbus Day, their last day of the season. We went early and it wasn't too crowded then. Because it was cloudy, the butterflies were lower down and we enjoyed them landing on us and fluttering around us...More

First time there and very impressed with the butterflies and their knowledge of them. Loved the Quails with their babies too. Also small colorful birds at feeder. Gift shop under utilized..not much of a selection with dark lighting..not appealing for shopping at all.

Wear layers when you go because it’s very warm and very, very humid! Did I mention how humid it is yet? Whew! I was so uncomfortable inside. Bring a bottle of water. It’s a thirsty job watching all those tiny aviators! That notwithstanding, I immensely...More

I recently took my twin grand-daughters (age 2) to the Butterfly Place. The first few minutes they just sat and watched all the butterflies flying, they were quite mesmerized. The garden is not large and was perfect for our girls to visit. We spent an...More
