Niagara Parks Butterfly Conservatory, Niagara Falls Reviews - Write a Review
My family and I decided to take my 7 month old son and it was fantastic! They take a group photo when you first go In and you have a option to purchase at the end. Then you go into a small room and watch a video clip to learn about the conservatory. Next you can enter and explore! I couldn't believe how many butterflies were there it was great. My son lived it. It is heated and has humidity but I was comfortable in leggings and a long shirt with sleeves. There are ramps and stairs as you walk along the path. There are benches you can sit on throughout. We stayed for just over an hour and could have stayed longer but we were hungry. Great for all ages and groups. There also is a great gift shop with all kinds of fun things. This is also where you can purchase that photo they take at the beginning. (I believe it's $22 ish for the download and print just the download is $16ish). The staff is super friendly and I'll definitely be going back 😆
Absolutely loved the conservatory! Thousands of butterflies flying around you. Gorgeous foliage and set up along beautiful walkways. One butterfly decided to hitch a ride on my hand within two mins of walking in and sat with me then entire time we were inside! Watch where you park. The parking isn't clearly marked and we ended up getting a ticket but still worth it!
The Butterfly Conservatory is a fantastic experience that really adds a lot to a trip to Niagara. The building has thousands of butterflies of all different sizes and colours in a tropical setting, with a variety of flora just as diverse. It's easy to get intimate with the butterflies, and if you wear bright clothing they will love landing on you! Staff in the park are very knowledgeable on the subject, and the butterfly's development from a chrysalis is very cool to see. I would say that the Conservatory is somewhat small, but getting to be so close to nature is much better than some other tourist traps.
It has got so many varieties of butterflies! My 3 year old as well as her mother loved it. Its refreshing after watching the waterfall whole day.. the rain forest is charming too!
Fabulous day trip from Toronto. The kids were completely enthralled. One suggestion: how about an outdoor maze or playground for the 'little ones'? Best wishes. The Mayer Lin family
