  • This is a nice environment and you do see butterflies, not as many as you would expect to, but we did see some unique ones.

  • It was great being able to interact with the butterflies in a hands on environment. My children loved it, and frankly so did I!

  • It was such a beautiful place to visit and explore. I can imagine myself sitting there for hours if it were more quiet We went on a Sunday which made it super busy. So many people in such a small place. Over all would definitely recommend. It’s magical. Maybe during the week is less crowded?
  • Great place to see beautiful butterflies and flowering plants. There is even some tortoises and a big iguana! Children especially love this place. It is worth the extra cost to purchase a ticket as it is NOT included in your museum general admission ticket. There is a small but informative exhibit inside of butterflies, their life cycle, and some other bugs. Check their opening hours as it opened later than the permanent exhibit halls when we visited.
