Very enjoyable. Great hands on experience for my 4 yr old granddaughter. Even the 1 yr old twins enjoyed it. Easy to get around and not crowded. We were there on a Wed.

We really enjoyed this place! The butterflies were lovely, and we enjoyed the other exhibits as well (my favorites were the octopus, the leaf bugs, and the tarantula you could hold). The gift shop had some really nice jewelry.

I really had a great time here. There were so many things to look at, and for an amateur photographer like myself, there were loads of cool opportunities for pictures.

Visiting the area and love to see butterflies any chance I can. Nice selection, about 100 on average so the butterfly room attendant informed us. Other insects and good tarantula specimens.

I am not sure, but you could call them to find out. It was easily wheelchair accessible, but if it's crowded it may be difficult to move around
