“Serene and beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2013

Visited the Harn Museum and the Butterfly rainforest, both beautiful and well worth a visit. Warm and humid in the Rainforest, so probably early morning would be the best time to visit.

“Beautiful Butterfly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2013

If you have AAA you only pay $5.00 to see the butterflies. It is well worth it and I have been there at least 3 times already; also the museums there are also great and enjoyable plus there is a place to eat at the other museum which is really good.

“Unique experience with butterflies”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2013 via mobile

Thoroughly enjoyed our visit in the butterfly rainforest. The shear number and beauty of the creatures is amazing as they flutter all around you. Great educational material too. Should have left more time for the natural history museum because that was terrific too.
