This was my first trip and it lived up to every expectation. There were many different species of butterflies flitting from so many beautiful blooms as you walked through - it was awesome. My husband laughed about the classical music playing, but it felt like a perfect nature documentary soundtrack. The aviary, bug zoo, and lorikeets feeding experience were also... More

It was just amazing to be surrounded by so many different butterflies fliting about. Buy the guide book and see how many you can identify. It was great fun and we took many photos. The tropical bird aviary was also a lot of fun. Some of the birds were building nests and landing on our heads tried to steal some... More

Recently became interested in the Monarch Butterfly, and received a gift card for Butterfly World. Fascinating exhibit with thousands of butterflies and plants and birds, etc. Walk around at your leisure, take your time and experience the amazing exhibits close up. Informative classes available, plants that attract butterflies for sale, and a cafe to sit and relax a while. Staff... More

We were very pleasantly surprised at the many varieties of butterflies and birds at Butterfly World. The Butterflies will actually sit on you and one bird perched on my wife's head. Now that's up close!

We were pleasantly surprised by the diversity of the exhibits. The butterflies were everywhere, with on landing on my flower print shirt. Very cool. We bought the butterfly ID book as we went in, and it was helpful in looking up names. They have a tropical plant walkway and exhibit, too, as well as birds. We enjoyed it all. It... More

We went to Butterfly World on my wife's birthday. It was a surprise for her ( and really for all others in our party) as I did not tell her where we were headed. We had never been there before, so she did not even suspect anything when we were getting closer. Once there we absolutely amazed with all the... More

This place is a must-see for anyone how enjoys butterflies! It is educational, beautiful and magical, all at the same time. The butterfly enclosure has thousands of butterflies, the passion flower walkway is unbelievable, and the tropical bird aviary is truly amazing. We spent several hours here - this is a perfect experience for all ages.

I am a butterfly lover and this place is the place for butterfly lovers. Walk around and they are flying all around you. They also have a rose garden and a building for bug lovers.
