The butterfly palace is stunning, the decor and building are perfect. A selfie paradise. The butterfly are so excited to land on you and drink from the nector flowers. My son even got to release a butterfly for its first flight.

"Mostly gift shop."
October 2022
Our visit there was ok. From the outside it looks really big, but once you get inside you realize it is mostly a gift shop. The butterfly exhibit is nice, but pretty small. The butterflies are beautiful, but not as impressive as I envisioned. The reptile area is ok, but kind of like a pet store. The maze and bungee forest are definitely for children. Good one time, but wouldn't go back.

"Pretty Neat"
July 2022
It absolutely lived up to the hype! My kids loved the mirror maze and the reptiles. Steve and Spike were really cool to look at and my boys loved to pet them. The "movies" we looked at before going into the butterflies were not the best qualitywise but they have good information in them. There were so many people in the atrium so I was a little overwhelmed but it was still a great experience, we will definitely come back!

"Butterfly Palace"
June 2022
Honestly purchased tickets to Butterfly Palace thinking it was cheap and would give us something else to kill time on our family vacation this summer. Once we were in the the Butterfly Palace I was shocked at how interesting it actually was and how many Butterflies actually came right up and landed on us and our feeders provided inside for a hands on up close and personal experience

"Great experience, price high for what’s available"
January 2019
Although the experience was amazing, I feel like there wasn’t a whole lot for our family to do. Especially for the price. Maybe it’s because it was non season?

Tip: Add their FB! It opened late due to weather but we didn’t know so we waited 2+ hours to get in. They posted the delayed opening in their FB
