  • Came here after visiting the caves. Such a lovely place to visit whether you're a couple or with kids. English couple run this and are so welcoming and informative. Always willing to answer questions ...  read more »
  • Insectopia is a good option to wait between the ticket purchase and time of visit to the chasm of Padirac. The owners at the entrance are very friendly, but the real interest is quite limited.

  • Advised by my sister, we went for a ride but a bit expensive given the length of the visit... Not too much regret because we have a buff insects who liked (including Butterfly greenhouse)... But we stayed a little on our hunger...

  • My family and I just returned from a beautiful trip driving around the South of France. We found Insectopia by accident really and we were met with a warm welcome. Its run by a husband and wife team, who one day packed their bags and moved to France to buy and own a failing business 'Insectopia', it was their adventure and project and a total punt! Its previous reputation was very poor and they had a lot of work to do. What I witnessed was a good and loving couple trying their hardest to make a flagging business successful, and they were doing a good job when I saw them. They were honest and passionate about their little enterprise and we all really enjoyed standing in the Butterfly sanctuary and having the most beautiful specimens flying all around you. We even witnessed a new tropical butterfly emerging from its chrysalis, I would have easily of paid to see that. They are making lots of new changes and really trying their best to make a go of things. They both really won me and my family over and I feel passionate to inform the rest of the world about this new little enterprise which is in need of positive support and encouragement. Aaron and Co.
  • Ben € 6.5 the entry, but the Interior not interesting for my taste, 20 min from visit there is not any insects we often see the same disappointed very disappointed that I throw €6 by land or in this exhibition is the same, I strongly discourages

  • Insectopia gives us the opportunity to see a specimens among the most astonishing of the reign of insects. Between game and sympathetic anecdotes on touchscreens, a fair dose of scientific explanations, a flawless presentation in realistic terrariums, come as I enjoy a really extra time family! Situated right next to the Gouffre de Padirac, Insectopia allows you to watch the most stunning types of insects. With interactive games and cool anecdotes on touch-sensitive screens, scientific explanations, natural looking in displays realistic terrariums, visit as I did, to spend a great time with all your family!

  • I do not at all share the previous opinions. It is really worth to see insects and butterflies. For photos is the ideal spot to make good quality. Very nice home.
