  • This was a really enjoyable outing where we had the opportunity to see so many beautiful butterflies and birds and a really neat collection of bugs. The setting and gardens are beautiful and are a sight to behold on their own. It's easy to spend an entire morning or afternoon here. This is a great place to take your family, or if you're looking to take a leisurely stroll. This is also a great place to capture some beautiful pictures. Definitely visit Butterfly World if you have the chance.
  • I love this place. I have been there twice in the past few months and am eager to go back soon. The butterflies are a wonderful mix of size and color. They also have lots of birds there and beautiful plants. It's well designed and a delight to be there. My advice is to take a map when you enter and follow it around, otherwise you can miss an exhibit. It's pricey but worth it.
  • It was wonderful to walk through with my 3 year old who absolutely loves butterflies. I just had to make sure she didn't swat them. They have many different species and their colors are all magnificent. There is even a hatchery in their research center and it was a great sight to be able to show her the pupa and even some butterflies that were hatching.
  • A bit pricey but then your helping to maintain the place so I guess it's understandable. Very pretty botanicals, butterflies and birds. A nice short stop. Relaxing.
  • I took my children here on Spring Break and they had a blast! This is a nice place; the gardens are very nice, and certainly the many butterflies and birds they have. It was also great that it was educational for my children. We certainly will come back visit once again... hopefully soon.
