The butterflies are the definite attraction here. It is fabulous having them fly all around you while you walk through the interior garden. Sometimes they even land on you, especially if you are wearing bright colours and standing still. It is a tropical environment, so...More

I took my grandkids here for a visit. We enjoyed all the different butterflies. The orchid room was beautiful as well. The kids loved the tortoise Samson. There is also a turtle pond outside with many turtles

Butterfly World at Coombs, BC is quaint and small. It needs some maintenance and work to improve its grounds but it was still fun to visit. My cost was $11 as a senior. The butterfly room was understandably warm. It was a small area may...More
