The Original Mackinac Island Butterfly House & Insect World

Attraction details
Reviewed October 18, 2012

This small, unassuming building tucked away on Mackinac Island is not to be missed. Once inside you are surrounded by a bountiful array of colorful butterflies of all types. We were fascinated with the numbeer and variety within this small area and spent considerable time photographing and enjoying the quiet surroundings and these beautiful creatures. This was v one of the highlights of our visit to Mackinac Island.

We went because we got tickets with a tour package. This stop is probably more fun if you have children with you.

We visited here because our 3 yr old granddaughter wanted to see the butterflys. Very nice, reasonably price admission prices also. Tons of butterflys in the enclosure, very nice and worth the money. More butterfly's here than in the Detroit Zoo's butterfly house it seemed.
