Very clean, interesting, lots of species of insects, arachnids, and amphibians. I was surprised to see a few aquatic species, too. It's a nice place to go in the afternoon and relax.

They are dedicated in my opinion for their employees being very informative and passionate for what they do. They cater to kids and adults. The children's section is very creative and they seem to love it. Ah and If you're not "arachnofobia" than you'll have the pleasure to hold "Rosie" the Tarantula!

Over 1600 butterflies, beautiful plants and flowers surround the rainforest environment! Highly suggest to attend one of the many (3-4) daily presentations. Very informative and you can see new butterflies being released into the pavilion for their first time! Pretty exciting!

My son has loved this 3-11 yo years. Unbelievable number of butterflies at times. Great insect collection.

This isn't a huge place, but you still gotta take the kids to see it. If you have kids that don't mind staying on the path and can sit or walk while looking around for butterflies to either fly by you or ones you can discover, this is for them. They also have a real tarantula that you can hold if you are over 3 or 4 years old. I dare you!
