Really neat to hang out and have hundreds of butterflies to photograph, or sit and enjoy them landing on you for a few moments.

Stopped In after a day of hiking gros morne. My second time there and it never fails to disappoint. With everything that's there and knowledgable staff. Great visit. Highly recommended for everyone to go and take this amazing site in.

Make sure you leave a couple hours to view this. The butterfly area just makes you sit down, slow down and let them land on you. How many can you get to land at once :)

The insectarium is a very fun place for children. This is our second year holding the family membership and it is worth every penny. The butterfly garden is always particularly fun for my daughter... they flutter around everywhere. She is a little nervous when they fly around her face but she is so intrigued and mystified by the butterflys. The bee hive, ants, and toads always keep her attention and the addition of a 'kids corner' this year really caps off the trip. Occasionally we will grab a ice cream... they don't disappoint with some very large servings. One scoop is enough even for an adult. This will continue to be a great place to bring our daughter.
