#2 of 12 in Wildlife in Branson
Nature / Park · Wildlife Area
Surround yourself with more than 1,000 fluttering, colorful creatures at The Butterfly Palace. Your visit begins with an educational, 3-D video about the lifecycle of butterflies. In the aviary, admire the rare and exotic species from around the world as they sip nectar and fly--some might land on you. After your time with the butterflies, head to the rainforest section of the facility, where you can see other exotic species, such as frogs, lizards, and scorpions. The mirror maze and recreated banyan tree roots will give you the feeling of wandering a dense rainforest. Participate in interactive exhibits at the science center, which also hosts daily feedings. Tours are self-guided and you don't have to make reservations. The Butterfly Palace is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , custom trip planner Edition.

  • Being in a large enclosed garden with butterflies is always a zen type experience and the Butterfly Palace does not disappoint in this area. They also have a couple of short films and a small area...  more »
  • We went on a rainy day, and the butterflies are less active, we were told ahead of time. But we had a time crunch to visit. We saw many lovely colorful big and small butterflies. Worth the trip.  more »
  • I have wanted to go here since I was a little girl, I never got the chance. I was wowed from the moment I walked in until the moment I walked out. First off they have several fun activities (for both kids and adults). Our favorite, other than the butterflies, was the mirror maze. We went through there 4 different times. The butterfly room was AMAZING!! If you go be sure to wear red they love that color! My daughter even got to release a butterfly that had just came out of its cocoon. The staff was very knowledgeable and obviously cared deeply for the butterflies and reptiles! Not to mention the price of admission allows you to come back the next day, which we did because we had so much fun the first day.
  • This place was so amazing! From the reptile room to the mirror maze to the main attraction butterfly room. My husband and I had a blast. The employees were so nice and helpful! The gentleman playing music in the butterfly room made it so relaxing and peaceful. Definitely recommend for people of all ages! Carrying around the flower just made them fly right up to you!
