  • I went in expecting to see a variety of butterflies but they were just monarks. Some of the children I brought did not like them flying around so i wouldnt bring real young children. The kit they sold...  more »
  • Loved this. The people working at the Sanctuary are knowledgeable and obviously enjoy their work. The Butterflies were well tended.  more »
  • Looks nice but closed until 2017. Should be in the description for this establishment for families not from the area.  more »

  • I love it , they give you a little show for the kids to understand how caterpillar turn to butterflys,the staff is great, the a few things for kids to do. The butterfly house is awsome !! They fly around inside , beautiful !!!!
  • My girlfriend and I just stopped by today and we both had a fantastic time. Everyone was friendly and extremely knowledgeable and interacted with the customers very well. We spent a good hour and change checking out the frogs and butterflies, watching a video about the life cycle of monarchs, and browsing the gift shop. I certainly recommend anyone of any age to make the trip in the heart of the Poconos. Thank you for such a fun time. I learned a lot.
  • Very informative and quick. Explanation of the life cycle of monarch butterflies. Then you get to feed and interact with them in the butterfly room. You can tell the staff loves what they do.
  • We arrived at 11am and they were 5 minutes late to open. There are electrical outlets and wires near the fish tanks, and in the butterflies room, on children's reach which is not safe. They ignored us the whole time we were there, but they did give some information to the only other family that was there in the same time. It would be nice to address everyone in the room when giving information. After we were in the butterflies room for less than 10 minutes, and we had to wait for it to be ready, the lady was not nice with my son and wanted to get us out and close the room to show a movie to the visitors. I came to watch real butterflies with my kids not a movie! I wanted to be generous with my rating but really they was not a moment when somebody was nice in there.
  • Small place with lots of friendly and educational staff members. It is not over industrialized and the people that are there really will love what they do and are super helpful. Beautiful butterflies and very kid friendly atmosphere.
