Were on the Island 3 days could visit as many times as you wanted with one time pay. Grandkids loved the small animals and other interesting bugs.

The Butterfly house was so fun. Seeing and feeling the magic of butterfly up close and personal was so joyful. My granddaughters and myself were fascinated and loved finding the different butterflies matching them to our chart handed out at the beginning of the visit.

Great place to go and see all types of Butterfly's. We thought Meijer Gardens in Grand Rapids was spectacular but this Conservatory will amaze you.

Kind of pricey, I don't even think we were in there for 40 minutes. Educational, kids loved it. Colorful variety of butterflies.

Small butterfly conservatory but still nice. Butterflys were still active in late September. There were probably 100 flying around.

The butterflies are flying and landing on everything including people (and maybe your dog.)They visually inspect you before you leave the "great house" to make sure there isn't a butterfly on you. You and the people running... More
