Was surprised to find this little gem on Mackinac Island. Great place to walk to beside the Carriage Museum and a market of shops near the Grand Hotel. If yo love the winged creatures don't miss it, otherwise a stroll into their gift shop may be all the butterflies you need to get.

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!

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. :-)
