Lots of butterflies to see. Patience is a key. Don't forget to look for the birds. The mirror maze was fun. Really kept the kids entertained and was informational

We stopped in on our way back to Illinois. This is worth the $18 admission. And with that you're helping the rainforest in Central America. The videos in the theater were done well and very informative. The butterfly aviary was the best. How can you not feel good with butterfly kisses all around you? They give you a little tube... More

The Butterfly Palace is little off the beaten path, but worth visiting. There are many and varied butterfly in the enclosure. We enjoyed the displays and there is a neat black light lit maze that the kids will enjoy. Only drawback is that it IS a little pricey overall.

Oh my gosh!!! This place is incredible! There is a fee to enter the butterfly sanctuary, but it is well worth the price. Stay as little or as long as you like with the butterflies as it's a self guided tour. See the butterfly nursery were young ones are pupating, sit on a bench and let the butterflies light on...

They really did a good job inside this building. It's small but it's fun to do especially with children. Also, they have a little bit more then just butterflies. A great place to take the kids. And if I'm not mistaken, they have times where they release the butterflies and visitors can watch. Unfortunately, we didn't make it in time... More

If you are use to going to aquariums, zoos etc., you might want to pass this one up. It might be a place to take your small child but anyone else would be bored. The ticket is good for 3 days but it wont take you long to see all they offer. There is a gift shop as soon as... More

The reptile room is an adequate size for an attraction as we are not a zoo or aquarium, we have over 25 different varieties of reptiles and amphibians. The mirror maze is a state of... More
