I had never been to a Butterfly Conservatory before we went here, so I wasn't sure what to expect. As we walked into the conservatory, it was like entering an in-door jungle in some sort of fairytale. There were little thousands of butterflies fluttering about in every direction. Some were playfully spiraling around each other, some were feeding on plates of fresh fruit, some were rested on plants here and there, and some were randomly landing on people. If you turned your head, you could have had a butterfly just resting on your shoulder. Upon entering this magical world, you are in the butterfly's territory and they can land on you at any time. If this is not something you are ok with, then this is not the attraction for you. It was a lot of fun to interact with the insects... there are also breeding cages in the back where you can see their cocoon hatching process behind a glass window. There was such a different variety of all different colored wings, and species! I didn't know all these beautiful colored butterflies existed! If you go here, make sure your camera is fully charged because there are so many awesome opportunities for some enchanting photo opps. Some butterflies might even land on your finger! You can walk through the Conservatory at your own leisure, and there is no set time that you are forced to leave, until closing. The place isn't that big, but you can easily spend up to an hour circling the grounds, marveling at the different species of butterflies and plants. This attraction is great for families, little kids seemed to really be fascinated by it all! There is a brief educational video that you have the option to watch in a room before entering the conservatory, but that is completely optional, and we decided to skip that, as we were on time constraint and had other attractions booked that day. If you are staying in central Niagara (close to clifton hill), this is NOT in walking distance of anything, so transportation is a must. WeGo buses do drop you off here and well worth the investment if you splurged on an Adventure Pass, which we did.

The very best Butterfly place I've ever been to. I'm really not into Butterflies but my sister-in-law is so I go to them to take pictures for her. This place was just loaded with Butterflies and all of them were active for the most part. This was part of the bus tour package that we bought for the day. We were able to do several things for one price including transportation. Great value.

If you like nature especially butterflys , this place is fantastic. They are in their own habitate ,and temperature controlled. If you wear bright colours they will be attracted to you,and with any luck they might land on you.

This was a very interesting fun visit. The butterflies fly around freely in the building. There are feeding stations everywhere where you can see some of them up close. The butterflies also land on people.
