  • What a great way to spend a few hours, for adults or kids of just about any age (even our 15m old liked it)! Lots of butterflies, and knowledgeable, multilingual, staff are extremely helpful. We have been to similar enclosures in the US, but this was better, being just netted in but otherwise outdoors. Not sure that I would drive a great distance just for this, but if you're in the area I would highly recommend this be on your list. Open every day except Tuesday, $5 for adults, $1.50 for kids 11m and up.
  • Been to other butterfly sanctuaries and exhibits but never with this much interaction. The flew all around us, landed, and hung on as long as you wanted. Our guide was very knowledgeable with a cheerful personality and good English Great for kids. Recommended.
