Niagara Parks Butterfly Conservatory - Review
Located amidst the Niagara Parks Botanical Gardens, the gardens in itself are a treat to walk through. With over 25,000 species of plants and the famed floral clock 12 meters in diameter, the Botanical Gardens have no entrance fee. It’s on these premises that the gorgeous Butterfly Conservatory plays host to over 2,000 species of butterflies. Walk through tropical pathways, past ponds and the Emergence windows from where the butterflies prepare for their first flight out into the world. Wear bright colours when you visit to attract the butterflies.

Niagara Parks Butterfly Conservatory, Niagara Falls Reviews
This is a huge hit with young children! Lots to see and do. I recommend getting here early to avoid the crowds. If you are a photography enthusiast this will be great for you too. The outside gardens are nice if you want something to do before or after seeing the butterflies. Most of the exhibit is wheelchair/stroller friendly. You will have a chance to take a group photo before going in. Side note: the gift shop is great, my husband bought himself one of the mugs that change color when a hot beverage is poured inside.
Such a beautiful place to go see and take your family. There are so many butterfly's that you can get so many great photos. Also take the time to read a little bit about what they do and get a good understanding of why they do it. I give it a 5 star Because of how nice it is the studies they do. And it such a great place to visit while on vacation.
Got this as part of the "adventure pass" and wasn't sure what to expect. However, it was great! The sheer number of butterflies and the variety is fantastic. The environment they're in allows you to really take them in. Plenty of picture opportunities. You can spend quite a bit of time there if you want. One plus is that there's also a botanical garden there and the area is huge. I'd recommend to anyone!
I have to say, I was surprised. If you have small kids, or adult friends, or honestly anyone as long as they aren't afraid of butterflies, this place is way more fun than I expected. After only a short walk in the enclosure you will get the chance to see so many different species of butterflies, but also watch them hatch from their chrysalis' and have several of them land on you, or even pick some up! It's a fun and interactive trip that is also educational and beautiful, it makes a wonderful centerpiece for the botanical gardens and I hope it stays for many years to come.
Great place to visit with the family. Plenty of butterflies in the indoor walk thru part, as well as different types of tropical flora found in warmer parts of the world. There is also a garden part in which you can take a horse drawn carriage to see around, as well as a cafeteria and an gift shop. Well worth the price of the visit and the amount of butterflies flying around is unforgettable. Highly recommend it.
