Butterfly Rainforest 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?
My kids love this place. They had so much fun with the butterflies and everything else. Will be back.
