The minute you walk in you are surrounded by butterflies and small birds! They even land on you. So fascinating to see them up close and in their natural habitats. The plants were also just beautiful.
Very educational as well.
A tad pricey.

Pleasant place to visit. Beautiful specimens all over the place. Variety in exhibits. Kids loved having the parrots sit on their hands, arms, heads, etc. Good educational experience.

It's not just butterflies. The butterflies are varied, beautiful and plentiful with more than 3000 in the aviary. There were more colors and sizes than I expected. In addition to the live butterflies there is an exhibit of pinned specimens.

There is also a bugatourium (my made-up word) of both live and pinned insect specimens from all over the world. And an aviary of hummingbirds. There are other exhibits as well.

The cafe was closed when we were there, but we could buy a drink (soda, coffee or tea), ice cream and/or snacks.

The venue is worth the trip and is suitable for adults and kids. I suggest visiting for about 2 or 3 hours.

We enjoyed this experience. Entry fee was fair considering the upkeep needed to provide excellent viewing of many exotic plants, hundreds of butterflies and many beautiful exotic birds. Beautiful clean exhibit, worth the trip.

Butterfly World is a nature lover's dream. Just when you think you have seen the most incredible butterfly on the planet, an even more incredible butterfly flutters by. In addition to the butterflies, Butterfly World is home to multiple species of birds and innumerable plants. As you walk through Butterfly World you pass through about 10 themed exhibits such as the Laboratory, the Tropical Rain Forest, the Paradise Adventure Aviary, the Hanging Garden & Butterfly Emerging Area and the Butterfly Museum and Bug Zoo. Each area offers something a little different and each area was interesting. After an initial three hours tour, we took a break at the outside snack bar and than went back through the butterfly aviaries a second time.

The price of admission for an adult or senior is $24.95. Butterfly World has a printable $3.00 off coupon on their web site which is good for as many as six people in your party. If we lived in Florida we would buy the annual pass. It is a wonderful place to take winter visitors that we could enjoy repeatedly.
