Always a great experience

I enjoy going here to see the new butterflies and just watch them. Fun to be in their environment. Not for those that are bothered by flying creatures.

This is probably one of the sweetest ideas for an attraction that I can think of. I mean, it’s like walking into a la-la-land of butterflies. I appreciated the suspense because the building itself is fairly large and has other things to do inside; but the door into the house looks like a normal door. This aspect made for a... More

I have lived in St. Louis for over 25 years and never went to the Butterfly House. This is a must see. I took my grandson and he loved it. The temperature in the butterfly house is probably plus 80 degrees with a high humidity. Be prepared to take off your jacket on a cold day or leave it in... More

Visually astounding. Children will enjoy watching the butterflies in a natural setting. It is warm in the natural habitat so be sure to dress in layers. I had a hard time making myself leave.

This is located right next to one of our favorite playgrounds so makes for a great time for adults to relax while entertaining the kiddos without feeling like you have to worry about spending a lot of money. My boys (8 and 4) absolutely loved wandering through the butterfly habitat--they just wanted to sit on one of the benches and... More

A great butterfly experience. The lobby has a few dispays of insects in various cages along with the giftshop. There is also an outside display that was closed due to time of year. If you are butterly enthusiast..this is a great stop!

Our granddaughters really enjoy visiting the Butterfly House. It's a great learning experience for them as well as for us. The Monarch Butterflies are beautiful.

I loved the Butterfly House! There was something amazingly soothing about being amongst so many beautiful butterflies. If it wasn't for the humidity, I could probably sit there perfectly content for a couple of hours. Super friendly staff. One of the butterflies attached itself to my clothing as I was exiting. Luckily, an attentive employee saw it and gently returned... More
