  • The Butterfly House is nestled between museums and Government buildings and almost we would have missed it. It has driven us really just so into it, because it was cold outside and wet. It is only a small detour and the tour is if you are not very interested in just a few minutes to create. Also is not a very large biodiversity. For that it is anywhere close to the action. To recommend for a short stint in any case.
