Visited Magic Wings for the first time yesterday. Having been to several butterfly conservatories over the years, we were really looking forward to it. It was nice, but there weren't many butterflies - not sure if it's because it was cool, but we didn't see them hanging from the bushes either. There was an interesting area outside the conservatory with... More

This is a great place to visit and it allows you to go back in multiple times on the same day. However, it is not a huge place. If you are a photographer, you may easily spend over an hour here. Otherwise it is still good for a visit but won't last much more than an hour for most people.

I was tempted to give the Butterfly Conservatory four stars. It’s a cool place to visit and delivers what you might expect; but nothing really exceptional. I was a little frustrated that there wasn’t anything telling you what the different species were – unless you bought an identification card (a bit cheeky maybe). But full marks to the staff: They...

We went to Magic Wings on a rainy New England autumn morning. The experience overall was fantastic, although there were a few negatives to our visit. We did not have a great first impression, as the young lady who worked the gift shop/ticket counter came across as quite rude. Who knows, maybe she was having a bad day, but she... More

This is a great place to visit whether you are with just adults or with children too. They have an "orientation" kind of room where there are a lot of live exhibits - some butterflies in large cases flying around and some lizards. Then you go through door and breezeway and enter through another set of doors to a jungle... More

We were pleasantly surprised by this beautiful butterfly sanctuary. It was very tastefully done, with many different types of butterflies and moths allowed to fly freely throughout the area while we walked around and tried to catch them on camera. My only regret is that we did not have our grandsons with us. They would have loved seeing all of... More

What an interesting place to visit, especially with school age children (some smaller children are afraid when the butterflies land on them, or might try to catch or touch the butterflies). Once you get used to the environment, you see more and more species - all sizes and colors. It is a unique experience, take it all in.

If you're thinking that Magic Wings Butterfly Conservatory & Gardens is a place to take kids... well, it can be. But don't write it off if you don't have kids. It's appropriately named, as it's a magical place. You go through double doors, meant to make sure the butterflies can't be inadvertently released and walk into an amazing place where... More

I have been to Magic Wings several times over the years. It always feels a little unreal to me to be surrounded by so many butterflies when you can remember as a kid chasing a single beauty through a field. My favorite time to visit is the winter. Frosty cold and snowy outside, but cozy warm and tropical inside. It's... More
