    Really great and interesting attraction, recommend visiting. Lots of insects and butterflies with really interesting facts. Loved the butterfly room and the huge beetles. Visit! Visitez!  more »

    This is a tour that allows you to do something else to Padirac, waiting to visit the chasm! Nice idea, held by two passionate English and very welcoming. Stingy don't explain. A little quiz for children is planned. Of beautiful vivariums, plenty of stick insects, of beetles of all kinds, and all sizes! A real discovery for our small budding entomologists. Too bad that there is not more museums of the living like this! Bravo and "Thank you for this moment"

    Small museum which was quick the round but allowing you to not go empty-handed to Padirac when the site is complete! Lots of ugly insects to do for kids, butterfly room is friendly, but there should be more.

    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.

    Pleasant family visit. Suitable for young kids. Managers are available and very welcoming. The Butterfly House is really very pretty and the quiz for children is well shot. We had a very good time.
