Great for the family. Loads of butterflies flying freely. Be prepared that these can land on you. Insects & spiders etc in glass cages (this part can be skipped if not your thing).

A lovely place to visit. Got loads of different butterflies as well as iguanas and some birds. A couple of side exhibits of atlas moths and othe bugs. Good for killing an hour or so

Interesting trip with a 6year old and baby. We came quite late so it was getting a little dark when we went in. It turns out the butterflies are a lot more active in the evening so we managed to get a few good pictures...More
