  • We originally visited The Butterfly Place when it was newly opened, over 25 years ago. It doesn't seem to have changed much since then. It is on the small side, but beautifully landscaped, so the plan...  more »
  • As an adult, I was wondering just how much I would enjoy this place. I've read mixed reviews on Trip Advisor. I am happy to report that I really enjoyed myself. The woman at the front counter was very...  more »

  • Took a group of 9 kids, from ages 4-14 and everyone of them loved it! Its an enchanting place! Lots to learn if you want to do that, or you can just enjoy the magical butterflies floating about. Some of them even land on u, but ur not allowed to touch them. Be forewarned tho- even in very chilly march its extremely warm and humid in there. Optimal temps for butterflies. A lovely place. I highly recommend it
  • The butterflies are beautiful and well-kept but it's very small. We went on a Friday morning and there were families and school groups all packed into a fairly small greenhouse. With this in mind, I think the admission price is a little high. We didn't stay more than 15 minutes because it was so crowded and my son was getting anxious. $21 gone fast. Also, it would be helpful if the employees in the butterfly area wore something identifying them as such. A man following us around and talking to my son made me nervous until I asked if he was an employee and he confirmed that he was. Beautiful butterflies, but we are not likely to go back or recommend.
  • If you love nature, then this is the place for you! Come and spend a day with nature and experience the oohs and ahhs of little ones as they frolic around with beautiful butterflies you won't find anywhere else! Experience the wonder of the many different species of butterflies flying freely in this enclosed area where butterflies will literally land on you - perfect for pictures! Highly recommended!!
  • My younger kids spend about 1.5 hours in the main butterfly room, which I would consider good for their age. They were disappointed that not all of the butterfly verities which they have on their identification chart were actually possible to see in the exhibit. They do have a short scavenger hunt which held their attention a bit longer then I expected. A few picnic tables are available, but no concessions on site.
  • I LOVED the Butterfly House! So beautiful and relaxing..even the music was PERFECT to add to the atmosphere! Staff are all friendly and knowledgeable. Definately plan to visit again!!
