One wouldn't normally expect a facility of this quality on an island in northern Lake Huron - but this compares favorably with butterfly houses associated with various zoos and gardens. Lots of interaction and interpretive activities available. A great value, as once one has paid admission, it's good for one's entire stay on the island.

Our visit to Wings of Mackinac Butterfly Conservatory was a part of a carriage ride package. If it had not been included, we probably wouldn't have chosen this as a stop. Boy, would THAT have been a mistake.

It was great fun to see such a variety of butterflies flying freely around us. And the photo opportunities were great!!

Definitely worth the stop!

Enjoyed the butterflies flying around... very nice! You have to watch your step and make sure they dont land on you...

I'm a part-time critter photographer and immediately fell in love with the butterfly house. The sun was warm & strong that morning after being rainy the day before & I was filled with the happiness & beauty of the butterflies. Lots of different species to learn about & their habitat was pleasant & relaxing. The husband found a bench & let me bask in their glorious energy for awhile. :-)

The staff are very helpful with teaching about the butterflies. Dress lightly, it is very humid for the plants and flowers that the butterflies drink from. It's like walking into a hidden world where the inhabitants great you by landing lightly on the hand that is holding the camera while another lands gently on your head. They flutter freely about in all colors and sizes. The hours are around the activity of the butterflies, they wake up about 10 am and go to sleep about 7 pm. It doesn't sound like much, but you should go!
