This one-of-a-kind, spectacular gem is tucked away, just off the Scenic Highway. While the butterfly garden is enchanting, it is the charming couple who own Butterflies Of Cape Cod that will make your visit unforgettable. Take time to engage them in a conversation about their...More

Although small, this is a well kept facility with many butterflies. Go on a sunny day so that the butterflies are active. Lots of different ones to see and if you’re lucky one may land on you!

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
