No signs on where to park. Luckily we ended up getting a spot last minute on the street at the pay and display. Which wasn't cheap. We found out later when I asked Melissa at the cash, that they had some parking for customers only...More

This conservatory is small but filled with butterflies, birds and plants. It is wonderful place to visit. The butterflies alight on visitors! The tiny quail wandered around our feet trying to cross the pathway. So worth the visit!!!!

Had a wonderful time here - the butterflies are amazing and you can go back anytime during the day you bought your ticket. Definitely can see why it's the number 1 place on trip advisor now!

Get like I was in the middle of a magical garden. Not only are there so many species of butterflies but also birds (brightly colored finches where unbelievable) and turtles. We spent so much time there watching all the butterflies. I didn't understand why it...More

We do have a small parking lot in the back of our building. This packing lot is first come first serve. Feel free to use it during any visit to our facility.

We do allow pets in our Gift Shop and Gallery, but not into the Conservatory. We would gladly watch your pet in our admission desk so that you may feel free to stroll through the Conservatory at your own pace.
