  • This place is difficult to describe but well worth the visit. Their product is displays of butterflies mounted in acrylic cases. You aren't allowed to photograph most of them but there is one little corner set up for pictures. There is also some nice meditation music that plays in the background. As far as I know they do not kill any of the butterflies, but acquire them naturally.
  • Everytime we visit Old San Juan we stop in this beautiful art gallery. Each work features exotic butterflies that have been meticulously encased in an acrylic box.
  • Great owners with very positive energy. Talented artist.
  • Incredibly diverse, well-preserved, and well-arranged collections. Takes hundreds or thousands to buy but worth a tour - good environment too. I believe its closer to the middle of the block than the map suggests.
  • Its a small a cozy store full of course of butterflies everywhere. It has an awesome high place with butterflies nursery. So you are able to see their lives from eggs to adult. Love the place and the personell was great also. For me, a place to learn, relax and enjoy yourself.
