  • My husband and I went to visit the Butterfly Sanctuary this week and we both loved it. You can tell these ladies love what they do and love to share their knowledge with you. It’s a great spot for kids. They have a room with frogs from around the world, a room full of butterflies and a cool looking water creature called axolotl. I loved the butterfly room because you got to get up close to the butterflies and even had one land on me. The women working there were great! Ask them anything!
  • Educational, fun, very reasonably priced. The staff is knowledgeable and helpful. We've been to other butterfly sanctuaries and this one is one of the best. It's small but effective. My kids loved the butterflies, frogs, and educational programs. They were entertaining for both adults and children. I highly recommend this place and look forward to coming back when we are in the area again.
