Although most of the exhibits were open, most were undergoing maintenance. It was a pleasant walk on the grounds. Although I was very disappointed to find that, I'm assuming due to the drought, the wetland area and the gator lake were both dry! With the work we saw going on it should be very nice to visit in the spring. I would return, but not during December.

Enjoyed the tour. Inside the butterfly house was awesome. Workers were very friendly and helpful. Good place to spend an afternoon. Gift shop had lots of cute things.

. Great time. It is so beautiful...I suggest going in the cool months because it can get really hot and steamy.
