“Great Place”
Reviewed April 9, 2014

Out of the two butterfly places in the area, this was the best. There were tons of butterflies all throughout the area. It is a bit of a walk so if you don't care for walking, take a taxi. If you get hungry and don't mind splurging, try the restaurant.

“Very cool!”
Reviewed March 22, 2014

Very beautiful layout - you can go into the gift shop and garden without going into the area for the butterflies where you actually need to pay to get in. The butterflies are gorgeous - however it concerned me that some were in bad shape (i.e. had battered looking wings). It's a small little conservatory but definitely worth a visit and you'll get some gorgeous pictures for sure!

“Fun way to see butterflies and hummingbirds!”
Reviewed March 21, 2014

This is a small butterfly sanctuary. What is really cool is that they have a set of stations where you can see the life cycle of a butterfly, including watching ones come out of their cocoon. The butterflies will also land on you -- so that is sweet. Oh, and they have a bunch of hummingbird feeders so you can see a lot of hummingbirds up close!
