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
Very fun for young and old. The temperature is quite warm inside but there is a coat check without any costs. You do have to leave your coat unattended. I left mine and trusted in the good willing of people and when I returned my coat was still there. On to the butterflies, it's a lovely experience. There are plenty of butterflies flying arround and some were feeding on fruit which gave us a chance to admire them up close. Different kinds of butterfly's with each their sizes and colors. You can also watch through a glass how the cocoons pop and take form.
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.
Absolutely stunning place to visit!! I'm not a butterfly enthusiast, but it was amazing! It's not an overly big exhibit, so unless you plan on walking the grounds--it's about a 1/2 hour trip. The canteen was CRAZY expensive and the photo they take of you at the beginning of the butterfly exhibit was nearly $30!!! Definitely bring your own water!
This was a truly magical experience. It's like what you imagine, plus a hundred or so butterflies. They were literally all over. We had a party of 3,and each of us had at least 3 times a different butterfly landed on us. They liked my hubby's hat the best! Beautiful, such a great variety of flora and fauna. Will definitely do again.
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.
