"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

"The Butterfly Palace and Rainforest Adventure"
June 2018
My 7 year old daughter loves this place! We have taken her to Branson twice so far and she had to go to the Butterfly palace both times! It is so neat! They even have a mirror maze that's all included in your ticket price (so don't waste your money going to Hannah's Maze of Mirrors----the mirror maze at the Butterfly Palace is way better!).

"Lots of fun!"
May 2018
The Butterfly Palace exceeded my expectations. Our wrist bands were good for three days, but I didn't anticipate going more than once for a couple hours. We ended up going another day as well. All three kids, ages 6, 11, and 14, enjoyed the experience. I recommend participating in their critter chats and butterfly releasing. Both are worth it. We went through the mirror maze dozens of times; the kids really enjoyed it. The butterflies will land on you and your feeding flower. It was a good experience, and if we are in the area again, I know the kids will request another visit!

Tip: You can't touch the butterflies, but they can touch you. Be sure to keep your wristbands on in case you want to come back another day--you probably will!

"Fun activity for all ages"
August 2017
We took our 3 year old son to see the butterflies at the palace. You are given containers of sweet butterfly food which attracts the beautiful creatures. My son thought that was so fun until one landed on his shirt. He was not so sure what to do when that happened. :)

The Rainforest Science Center was educational. He enjoys seeing and learning about different living things.

Tip: Allow ample time to see the attraction and visit the excellent gift shop in the lobby.

This was a special place in which we took our granddaughters. They had fun doing the bamboo maze. Then we went into the butterfly area. At first they were scared of the butterflies landing on them on the nectar, but as time progressed they warmed up. It was beautiful and even us adults had a blast. Such beautiful butterflies with exquisite colors. Would highly recommend. There is no time limit as to how long you stay with the butterflies. We also stayed and participated in the release of new butterflies.

Tip: Be aware the area where the butterflies are is not air conditioned. It is very hot and humid inside.

"Family Adventures! All Indoors! Release of NewBorn Butterflies - Rainforest Adventures!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed August 11, 2019 NEW
This Indoor Adventure is one of the Most Fascinating tributes to the Butterfly & Rainforest's! Family Adventure wrapped up with Historical facts on this beautiful insect. The butterfly is one of the most colorful insect that to the day, amazes me. Price - 3 day ticket! 3 days! I attended those 3 days. Each day I leaned new things: one day I was delighted to be a party to the release of the newborn butterfly. There is a particular procedure that you must follow: you have many tools that may be used: magnifying glass, Adventure Hat (Cool), flower cups (with juice) so that you may feed the butterflies. Just remember to 'return them to there original place" so that others may have them when they come. There are knowledgeable guides, members, to answer any and all your questions, the various colors of butterflies, insects, their births, their death, "do not touch" very important "watch where you walk" very important: this Palace of History doesn't stop here - it continues with the education of the rainforests. The Theatre I recommend - listen to the Guides - find a place to sit as you share a flower juice with them. Yes, nothing to fear from these creatures: colorful, friendly butterflies, sits anywhere with and on you. Which brings an important message: on your way out, stop and allow the guides to check you out. Each day I was there, butterflies landed either on my hat, my slacks, my blouse, one of the guides said that my blouse looked like one of the Butterflies flowers. Which bears questions: tell me more. I did take many photos, here is where I left my camera. I do have a couple on my mobile phone. Now if I could only find a way for my old flip phone to download? Smiles In the early mornings they have a time which they release the newborn butterflies. Highly recommend! Family Fun - there is a maze that I accidentially found - was happy to follow some children out: thank you guys! More things in the Rainforest. To include, variety of insects, frogs, snakes, etc. I recommend using those 3 days that is included in your price. Much to see and do!Amazing! Yes, there is a gift shop. I purchased a book on both the butterfly & rainforest. I believe the cost was reasonable. Thank you for reading. Hope it helps. Family Entertainment. Prayers & Blessings L
