Butterfly House & Aquarium reviews
Intimate fun filled environment! We saw see creatures here that we haven't seen other places! I highly recommend for young children. more »
My boyfriend and I chose to stop here on our mini vacation. The employees are extremely knowledgeable about the butterflies and different water animals. We learned a lot about stingrays and jellyfish.... more »
We love this place. I purchased a membership so that I could go again and again. It's peaceful. People mention the price, but the proceeds are what run the place and up keep the animals. Their goal is outreach and conservation, just like the small zoo. If people have great interactions with animals, they are much more likely to be concerned about their welfare-even if we are in landlocked SD and the wild for them are oceans. It's small but worth the experience. Take your time. Enjoy the butterflies. Pet the stingrays.
This place is well kept and there is some great information to learn. However, It’s a huge stretch to call this an aquarium. There are maybe six small fish tanks. The touch pool and the string ray tank are neat. I fully understand what they are trying to accomplish here and I think they are doing it but the price is completely outrageous for what you get. You could cut admission in half and have twice the volume of people come through which in the end would lead to larger profits because people love the gift shop. This is the type of place that should really join forces with the local zoo. We have two zoo’s back home and they both have a butterfly house as nice, if not nicer than this one. Overall a fine experience just a bummer for what you pay.
