    This butterfly is a place that can give you much calm if you're a nature lover, you receive with an exhibition of different butterflies and insects, with its location and Anatomy Diagrams. Then dried the area where butterflies released daily, and study them (some butterflies have a number attached to their wings). The dress you can spend hours looking at them but usually they will not be more than 10-15 minutes. Feels much moisture inside the area thing that some would find unpleasant. Although the cost is in the area of the Museum of natural sciences is additional, which seems good, to select the number and type of visitors.

    What's not to enjoy this ride, especially the part about the "butterfly garden", with luck one lands on you. When we landed in the eye of a person, paid good photos and laughs.

    So many butterflies to view. Many types and ever time you stopped, there were so many to see. Staff were knowledgeable and helpful. Price is good if you are already a museum member. It's a very memora...  more »

    I found this exhibit exceptionally fascinating! The butterflies were beautiful and I was amazed at all of the different species I saw and all of the different colors of their wings. It was so neat to be able to walk through an exhibit with all of the butterflies flying around and to be able to interact with them.

    The Butterfly Exhibit is amazing for young and old alike. The residents are welcoming and will often grace you with their presence if you wear bright colors or generally smell flowery. It gets very humid so dress lightly, and wear nonslip shoes as the stairs can get wet sometimes. It's very much worth the trip to HMNS just to see this place.

    Check this place out in winter, when it is cool outside and you want to warm up. You will feel like you are in a tropical paradise. Beautiful butterflies flutter all around you and there is a huge iguana lounging about.

    Great place for the family. Full of fun facts and beautiful butterflies. Wear something colorful if you want the butterflies to land on you. Please DO NOT throw coin into the ponds with fish. Very warm and humid inside the dome with butterflies.

Where to stay in Houston

If you come to Houston to splurge while on holiday, book a luxurious room at a downtown hotel. This area is an ideal base for getting to know Houston, offering you a chance to stay within walking distance of one of the country's largest theater districts. Houston bills itself as the "Energy Capital of the World," so it's no surprise that it houses many "green" hotels, their garages designed to cater to electric vehicle owners. For something completely different, enjoy a Texas country experience at a working ranch outside the city limits.
