This little butterfly house is home to an amazing array of butterflies! Very easy to access and fun to photograph. One of my favorite spots on the Island.

Nice place, full of friendly people. Worth an hour or two visit. Really cool opportunity to visit again throughout your time on the island. Nice gift shop. But, lots of butterflies, and gentle surroundings.

We took our kids, ages 5 and 2, while we were on the island. There aren't a lot of activities on the island suitable for kids so this attraction appealed to us. The kids enjoyed it and there were a lot of different varieties of butterflies to see. Even though we walked slowly, we only spent about 30-40 minutes there. The owner was lot of fun to talk to and was very passionate about butterflies and conservation. It was because of his personal interaction that I'd recommend this visit to others.

We have gone there 3 times now and each time we just relax in the room and watch the butterflies just flap around. So great to watch my kids wanting to learn about them

We received free passes with our home rental so that was a plus! There are unlimited visits with your admission fee. You first enter a room where there are lots of butterflys are pinned up to view and see where they are from. There is a large case where tons of butterflys cocoons are hanging and hatching. You then enter a large greenhouse with beautiful flowers and butterflys flying around everywhere. Definitely hot in there! After that we went into an insect room with turtles, spiders, lizards in aquariums. Finish up in the gift shop. http://www.originalbutterflyhouse.com/
