Butterfly Rainforest At The Florida Museum Of Natural History Reviews & Ratings
This exhibit brought out the girlish wonder in me. There is lush greenery, a bubbling brook, and the butterflies are exotic and playful. The displays of worldwide species are extensive. There is a lot of information available to make this a learning expedition. The staff is very friendly, each person we encountered. $14/adult Florida residents. $7 seniors. Not sure about admission price for children.
Very Beautiful place to visit especially with the family. Very affordable place to just take a drive to on the weekend. The kids are going to love it! Plenty of history of the area shared through stories in different areas and also on the birth, life and migration of butterflies. A very large interactive room for kids to play and a picnic area. A huge screened in garden enclosure you can walk through with butterflies and flowers all around you. Highly recommend!
Great exhibit! We went to the art museum next door(free) and walked through the nature museum too(also free). It has hands on exhibits for kids and adults. The entry fee for the butterflies is worth it having the other exhibits free of charge. Lots of butterflies flying around. You do have to pay to park.
Absolutely breathtaking. From the beautiful landscaping to the amazing butterflies everywhere, it makes for such a serene and lovely exhibit. Can this please be my back yard?
Really great place to spend an hour or so, lots of benches where you can sit and watch the butterflies, turtles and fish. Try and overlap with the daily release of new butterflies as they give a quick talk about them and how to identify. Such amazing colours!!
