Three of on went on the long weekend. It wasn't as busy as I thought it would be, which was nice, and there were many butterflies flying around. There are also some small birds, turtles, fish, partridge, and a small exotic bird. We were lucky and had a few butterflies land on all of us. We had a good laugh and would return. As other mentioned, not as large at the Niagara conservatory, but still good.

Went on mother's day and my kids had a nice time! Its a worth while one to two hour visit.
The food was quite decent in the buffet.

It was a lovely break from from the winter rain mixed with snow. You could go there in your short sleeves and feel like you are vacationing in a tropical destination. It smelled wonderful and I could feel myself relaxing as the peaceful environment enveloped me.

The above title explains it all. That God, the creator would make these short-lived creatures so beautiful! To imagine that they are able to navigate thousands of miles. The Monarch butterfly finds it way to Mexico. It is inconceivable that there is no plan to the creation. To think that these creatures go from flower to flower, feed themselves, find a resting place and provide beauty and wonder and awe without being aware of it.

I saw six to ten on a man's hat as he meandered through this replica of a tropical paradise! Children were milling around entranced by the dance of two butterflies clothed in their back and white "tutus". The exhibitions noting their extraordinary life journey with what can only be described as monumentous changes -- going from a caterpillar to a pupa to a creature that has no resemblance to its original form.

Thank you God for making such marvelous creatures!

Other than it being so humid which is required for the butterflies it's a lovely little place to visit for a few hours. Wear bright colours and you will likely find a friend or two. My children love it here and we will continue to visit one or two times per year.
