  • This is one of the best places to visit in Sioux Falls. The butterflies are amazing and the Marine Cove's selection of displays just brings it over the top. The aquarists are knowledgeable and amazing people. The coral tanks look great and the touch experiences are wonderful. Must stop place!
  • Such a fun place to bring your kids and to enjoy yourself. Amazing to see all kinds of butterflies just flying around you!
  • Wonderful place!! Has a small aquarium portion where you can touch sharks and sting rays and other swimming creatures. Also a nice assortment of fish in their tanks. Then it's into the butterfly room! It's amazing!! Thousands of butterflies fly around you, land on you and just look pretty everywhere!! We spent a long time in here just watching them. We had a nice time, it is a little pricey but it is worth going at least once!!! A little piece of the tropics here in South Dakota!!
  • It's nice, but it's not very big. I would have liked more walking space in the butterfly room. The aquarium was nice too, but again, very small for the price paid to get in.
  • Our kids loved it! There was a group of kids there from an organization so was a bit crowded though. Might be worth calling ahead to see how many groups are scheduled on the day you want to go.
