Spent over 3 hours at the butterfly house; seems to have expanded quite a bit over the last 10 years. Think the price is about right for what you get.

Been here several times over the years, always been a good experience for a few hours, kids get to be hands on with the animals and staff are patient and answer their questions how ever bizarre. Best to visit in God weather.

We decided on a wet and windy day to visit the butterfly centre. The butterfly house itself was very good and the place was being set up for Halloween. You really need to take small children to get the best reaction to the facilities around the site.

This is so much more than just a butterfly house. There is so much to do around the park, we went when it was leading up to Halloween and the decorations were fantastic. My 2 year old loved it. And the dinosaurs there really is something for everyone. Loved the Lemur walk through, definitely got up close (on our heads)... More
