We thoroughly enjoyed our visit! The butterflies were stunning and the flowers were beautiful! Hint: Wear very lightweight clothing or dress in removable layers as the building is warm - just the way butterflies like it.

My wife loves butterflies and this small wonder was a great experience, she had several butterflies land on her. Spend some time in the area really looking and you'll be surprised what u find. Gift shop was cheesy. But if your there make a point to spend an hour in the butterfly area

Not a whole lot to see here - but it's cheap and fun to see reaction of young kids (11 or younger) to all the butterflies. Not a big excursion - just 30-60 minutes of entertainment.

Normally I am not a great fan of Butterfly Houses but when my wife put it on our schedule I went. I was truly amazed at this place. The butterflies were very active and gorgeous. We took dozens of pictures of these awesome creatures and enjoyed the time they gave us as they only live for about 7 days so we saw a good part of their lifetime.

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.
