  • Average trip. We arrived at approximately 11:15 am and made our way inside the butterfly garden and aquarium to buy our tickets. The tickets were pretty pricey for what we saw during our admission...

  • So so many butterflies!!! Oh my! It was so pretty and just so many butterflies it was fantastic! Being able to walk around with the nectar to draw the butterflies was neat. The staff was super informative and helpful. Everyone was so kind! The aquarium part was interesting. There were no stingrays at the time we went the exhibit was under construction. Overall it was fun!
  • Such a wonderful place to visit. I went as a kid and finally was able to make it back! The aquarium side doesn't really have a lot to see but the few things they did have are pretty cool! The butterfly section is glorious. Would highly recommend renting the fake flower they have as we had a lot more stop on us because we had the flower. It's quite warm in there so dress accordingly!
  • This was our first time here. The aquarium was very small. Although our son enjoyed sticking his head in plastic dome and being able see the fish around him. The butterfly house was enjoyable seeing the many species of butterflies flying all around you. The employee in the butterfly house was very knowledgeable teaching our son about butterflies. Our son liked digging around in the sand box. We were hoping to buy a souvenir from the gift shop but everything was over priced. Our son enjoyed the experience, but we thought it was quite expensive for such a limited experience.
  • Enjoyed the stop! We spent about an hour and a half here. The aquarium was fun and informative. The butterfly area was beautiful and we loved being able to feed the butterflies. Note: no big bags or purses, no hooded jackets or sweatshirts, cardigans, jackets, etc due to the butterflies potentially sneaking in and hiding. some customers were mad but it wasn't a big deal for us
  • Small venue, but excellent size if you aren't looking to be overwhelmed. Large park complex with playground, Pavillion and plenty of parking. Looked like Boys and Girls Clubs utilize this venue also. Restrooms accessible from outside available.
