We stopped here as part of our Cape Cod adventures. My son loves butterflies (age 7). It’s a lovely little spot. We found it easily and although small, it’s fun and educational. We enjoyed it!

Went in and made a quick look around. Very tired place. Location is tricky to find. Hope they can upgrade somehow.

The enclosure for the butterflies is fairly small, but deceptively so - there were MANY beautiful butterflies and moths to observe close up. Informative signs gave interesting info about the different varieties. Also, the folks who run this are extremely knowledgeable and in the gift...More

Not too far off the beaten path in Bourne, MA is a wonderful butterfly house. Dozens of colorful and delicate creatures fly freely around as you wander through the flower-filled pathways inside the butterfly house. Take a seat on one of the benches and let...More

I've stopped here the past three or four years while staying on the Cape. Being with the butterflies, especially on sunny days when they're more apt to fly and even alight on your arm or back, is always a special experience. There's a small bench...More

It is a small place and there were not as many butterflies as I thought there would be. There are caterpiller stations set up with information. This is better for older children and if you need to break up your trip.
