“Great place to kick the winter doldrums”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2012

I love to go here in the winter when I need taste of summer. Be sure to wear clothes that can be shed and easily carried while photographing, as it's quite hot and steamy inside. This is like being in a tropical rain forest with the butterflies flying all around you--sometimes alighting on your head and shoulders. Great photo opportunites!

“Beautiful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012

Simply beautiful, not just for kids, I took my teen boys and they loved it. Extremely hot and humid. If you are looking to take photos allow time for your camera to adjust to the humid surroundings.

“Unbelievable-A Dream”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2012

For $6 this is the most amazing Experience in all of St. Louis. When you walk into the Butterfly house you are immediately greeted by beautiful butterflies from all over the world. They light on your shoulder, they fly in front of your face, they are EVERYWHERE. I am not kidding. You follow a path around this lovely place for what is an experience of a lifetime. This place is a gift to all of us. Do not miss it.

“Kid or adult ..take a look and be fascinated”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2012

Ok butterfly houses are for kids and the girls, right ...WRONG! This place has a facinating live butterfly collection to walk amongst and enjoy the sheeer beauty of nature and marvel as they land on you collar or you stop to look at them closely to marvel at the intrivate beauty of their wings. Yes it's educational, yes the kids will love it ..and so will you. Good price, stay as long or short a time as you like,there's other attractions there at Faust Park or just flop and relax in the park .. dare you not to enjoy it!!
