My husband and I enjoyed our morning visit with a variety of butterflies and birds. It’s mating season for the flamingos, so a bit noisy. Beautiful plants and an opportunity for some amazing photos. Not a huge place, but you could easily spend 45 minutes...More

Simply beautiful! After enjoying the beautiful butterflies for a while, I watched people enter. Everyone smiles! Hundreds of colorful butterflies everywhere and birds and turtles, too. Well worth a visit.

Informative videos before entering exciting. Once in, saw saw several different varieties of butterflies. Some real beauties! The cobalt ones were especially attractive and numerous. Reasonable admission cost. Takes an hour plus and worth the cost. Can use your phones for pictures.

Spotted from the street as we walked by and said why not... Very nice atrium where the butterflies roam freely. Nice variety and well laid out. Quite relaxing and worth the visit.
