The Butterfly Palace, Branson

3.5
#4 of 20 in Wildlife in Missouri
Surround yourself with more than 1,000 fluttering, colorful creatures at The Butterfly Palace. Your visit begins with an educational, 3-D video about the lifecycle of butterflies. In the aviary, admire the rare and exotic species from around the world as they sip nectar and fly--some might land on you. After your time with the butterflies, head to the rainforest section of the facility, where you can see other exotic species, such as frogs, lizards, and scorpions. The mirror maze and recreated banyan tree roots will give you the feeling of wandering a dense rainforest. Participate in interactive exhibits at the science center, which also hosts daily feedings. Tours are self-guided and you don't have to make reservations. The Butterfly Palace is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Branson Edition.

Where to stay in Branson

Packed with good-value motel rooms, Branson offers decent accommodations at affordable prices even during the height of the tourist season. If you've come to enjoy the views of the Ozarks, look for vacation rental cabins, many of which are available on a nightly basis. A short drive out of town, most two- or three-bedroom cabins offer free Wi-Fi and fully equipped kitchens, along with access to enclosed yards ideal for hosting small parties. To stay in town without breaking the bank, look for mid-range hotels near Highway 76.
