I LOVE the butterfly house however you MUST dress in cool clothing as it is Very warm in there and uncomfortable if you dress in heavy clothing. The butterflies light on you and you can see them all so clearly. Beautiful!

A wonderful place to visit at a fair price. You will never see as many beautiful butterflies and moths in one place. They are literally everywhere in the conservatory. Be prepared, it is WARM in there. You can learn a lot. Nice place for couples,...More
