I’ve been been to this place a few times with my special needs grandsons. It’s very soothing and calming to sit on the benches and soak it all in. Not too big and easy to get around. The staff are very knowledgeable and patient.

Very pretty to get married with butterflies. Nice reception room, you can bring your own flowers and candy for the tables. Perfect for a small wedding.

My kids have always loved going to the butterfly Conservatory. Clean, pretty, affordable and basic fun. Doesn't require a lot of effort and/or time. Just know that it can be fairly warm in there at times.
