The kids (ages 2-5) had a wonderful time at the center and learned a lot from the staff there. The staff was very knowledgeable and showed us all the different stages of the butterfly life cycle and the various species there. Great experience overall.

You can combine this place with a visit to the landmine museum or a trip to Kulen mountain, as they are both close by. It's only $5 to get in and that includes a guide. You'll learn about the life of a butterfly, and then...More

You can go to learn about butterflies, or to just look at some pretty things. I had an impromptu visit on my way back from the Landmine Museum. I'm glad I stopped.
