The fish were fun, you are able to touch the sea life. Butterflies are amazing! There were so many and so many different kinds. Nice place to sit and relax.

Very nice aquarium area, but very small. Nice interaction from the staff. Friendly and helpful. Butterfly area is Devine! Beautiful and lush plant life. Love the small birds and pond. I gave it a bit lower rating because it seemed like such a short visit...More

We took our children to the Butterfly House and Aquarium and we all LOVED it. My youngest son is really interested in sharks, so being able to touch living sharks was amazing. Also being able to touch sting rays and other aquatic creatures was neat....More

I stopped here with the kids to do a fun activity. They loved it as always. It is small so don't expect to be here for the whole afternoon. It is expensive so we don't come very often.

The butterfly house is an awesome place children. The children are able to watch the butterflies fly and eat. They can even touch a shark.

On a nice day it's a great spot to take visitors or the kids. You can picnic under the pavilion or take a walk along the paths.
