“Best on the Island”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2014

Not only a must stop on the Island but the gift shop is great too! A butterfly house is a ton of work to set up each season and this place does it right.
Very friendly, very fun place to stop.

“Beautiful butterflies”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2014

Butterflies from all over the world. Check out the South American collection, they're absolutely gorgeous. Friendly staff available to guide you, answer questions, and take photos with your camera if you're traveling solo. Truly a big kid today; I had a good time playing the musical butterflies.

“Great for Kids Who Love Bugs!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2014

Our boys (2&4) love to visit here and request it every time we visit Mackinac Island. If your kids love bugs, this is a great place for them! We like to visit very often during our stay. (Very fun gift shop, too!)
