We bought tickets for the carriage ride and butterfly house. When I bought the combined ticket I thought there was only one butterfly house (the orignal). To my surprise when we get off at our carriage ride stop, the butterfly house looks different than I remember (that's when I found out there was 2 on the island). I wasn't impressed with this butterfly house. The butterflys were cool, I liked the educational butterfly signs, but the place was on the small side. The Orignal butterfly house is better (imo).

Watch them fly, wave their wings, sweep over you in a blur of blue only to blend in when landing. Lush, small spot but worth every penny!

We didn't know there was a butterfly conservatory on the Island but we are very glad they took us there on our tour. No one in our group knew that butterflies live only a few days and there are butterfly farmers just as there are those who raise cattle.

We were on the carriage tour which stopped in this area. The Butterfly Conservatory is an extra fee on the carriage ticket. It's not a very big place, but it has lots of different butterflies to view. You must watch where you step or sit. You never know where one will land. It's very relaxing to sit and watch these beautiful insects. When you are leaving the museum, make sure you don't have any butterflies trying to make an escape with you.
