  • This is a beautiful place, even on a Saturday afternoon with little kids. If you take your time, slow down, and simply watch, you'll gain some peace. And maybe a butterfly will alight on you, too!  more »

  • This place is amazing! Thoroughly enjoyed the scenery. The waterfall was breathtaking. Missed the morning release of the butterflies, but still got to see many of them.
  • We have a wonderful time visiting the Cockrell Butterfly Center and would recommend to everyone. We saw hundreds of butterflys and even say saw one emerge from it's cocoon! Very interesting and cool!
  • The kids loved the butterfly exhibit. The new Red Legged turtles addition was an added fun. The enclosure is cleaner now and well kept/maintained.
  • Cool place! The temperature difference between the levels is pretty dramatic, so if you are too hot, got down a bit!
  • It was peaceful and gave me a day of Zen with a friend greatly needed. The beauty of Natural creation leaves me in awe.
