  • One of the best places to be on summer to be with loved ones. The place is sure to sink you in awe. The place has an insect museum followed by the butterfly place. The butterfly place is warm with great plants and flowers and butterflies fluttering their wings literally across your face is the best thing that can happen. Loved this place.
  • My toddlers absolutely adore the butterflies here! They never want to leave, constantly watch the butterflies land on people, and enjoy walking around the entire area. It’s such a relaxing area, even with three toddlers in tow. They also enjoy playing in the kids area near the exit. We love this place!
