See that pretty butterfly? I hope that schelping through animal feces and being exposed to various pathogens is worth it. Everyone has different tolerances for germs - mine is high. This venue doesn't... more »

We were surprised at the variety of non-butterfly animals, birds and insects on display. The curator was informative and took time to go into depth on many subjects. We enjoyed hunting for specific an... more »
Well-intended setup but could use some new energy and ventilation system. Interesting specimens but none are indicated on any type of chart to refer to as you click away with photos. Staff was informative though if asked questions and one young gal even holds small animals for you to pet. There were not many butterflies but it was March so perhaps there will be more as the season warms up.
Was a nice place to bring our young daughter. Quite warm, though, so don't wear your jacket inside. Birds, turtles, toads, and butterflies roam free. Great opportunity for some cool close up photography. Best during the Summer.
Nice space with lots of cool insects, birds, and reptiles. It would be nice if there were more information about the animals and butterflies, like placards or something.
First of all....go to the "Official" Popp Conservatory website to get the current information regarding the days and hours of operation......I've talked to the Conservatory people and apparently Google is completely incapable of maintaining the correct and current status of the place. It is temporarily closed and will be opening for Memorial Day....regardless of what Google says. This is a very special place in that the majority of the animals are free to run around in the plants and trees....you get to interact with them in a natural environment. The more you look, the more you see. Take your time and let the animals get used to you....they're just as curious about seeing what you're up to.
Love the warmth and variety in the conservatory. ...a bit overpriced. .we are local and go a couple of times a year...12$ is alot.
