Love the Butterfly Pavilion Beautiful, relaxing, serene! A tropical paradise any time of year! Of course they have beautiful butterflies, but in addition, they have stunning tropical flowers and green plants that take you away to another place while in the middle of Colorado!

I have never gone but talking to people with kids say the kids love it and it's a great learning experience. They will be moving to a location a few miles away in Bloomfield Colorado sometime in the future.

I have never seen so many butterflies in my life. Was such a cool experience. Loved it!!! Besides the Butterfly Pavilion. We learned a lot about bugs and saw a large variety of things I pray to GOD I never see in real life.

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

I don't know that the butterflies are released at certain times. They seem to be always flying around.
