Review of Homosassa Butterfly - CLOSED

Attraction details
Reviewed August 24, 2013

When our little grandchildren aged 1-12 come to visit, we always make this butterfly garden a stop. One can only tolerate and afford so much excitement at the theme parks This is a wonderful, calm and educational alternative experience for all of the children. The owners are involved, helpful and patient with their guests. We are treated to a really good movie, an a step by step, hands on guide through the life cycle of everyone's favorite insect. The children love releasing the butterflies in their lovely home, and walking through the garden. We never tire of taking new visitors. Great way to spend an afternoon!!

Our Grandchildren, ages 5-11, enjoyed it very much. The film is very interesting and the whole experience is educational. The best part is releasing butterflies in the garden. The kids loved it.

If you live in the area it is a great little butterfly garden. The owner was very hands on while we were there and took us around and showed all the life cycle of the butterflies. We were there in time to release some butterflies into the garden. Nice side trip for the Homosassa wildlife park.

A feast for the eyes, for avid visitors of butterfly houses. From the moment you enter the driveway you are wisked away by the lovely larger than life paintings of butterflies gracing the facade of the Homosassa Butterfly House. The fully mature plantings from floor to ceiling along with the bench seating area made a visit so worthwhile after spening a glorious morning swimming with manatees in 3 Sisters Springs. After a day of touring the area it was wonderful to relax in the misty forest with numerous colorful butterflies flying everywhere around us. Additionally, the exotic flowers, vines and plantings from every shape, size and color are lovely. The Butterfly house was a delightful treat and so refreshing after a long day. Definitely, this specialty museum is worth a visit when planning a trip to the area.

We had a great time visiting! The 18-minute video presentation was very informative and quality was great for such a small attraction. Never knew I could learn so much in a one hour visit. Butterflies are beautiful, but I definitely have a better appreciation of everything they have to accomplish in such a short amount of time! We enjoyed the tour, but our favorite was the butterfly garden/greenhouse. We were even given 'brand new' butterflies to release in the garden. We did not expect that, but what a treat!! This is definitely a hidden gem. We got some gorgeous pictures in the garden. I absolute recommend visiting!
