  • Loved this place--the butterflies were numerous and the conservatory itself had beautiful greenery. Watching all the different butterflies was mesmerizing.

  • Fun for all ages but the kids will love it. So many beautiful butterflies flying around and landing near and even on you. The birds are also a special treat. Be sure to ask the knowledgeable guides how the new butterflies are moved from their “nursery” to their new home. It isn’t how you would expect. Highly recommended. Don’t miss this!
  • An amazing place! We loved walking through and seeing all the butterflies. There were so many flying around it was sometimes hard to know where to look. I loved all the birds too. The two flamingos were adorable. All the staff was super helpful and the gift shop had a wide variety of butterfly and garden themed items.
