Niagara Parks Butterfly Conservatory, Niagara Falls Reviews

  • Really impressed by this place. Literally hundreds if not thousands of butterflies. All of them were super active and very interesting to watch. The space is beautiful. We came in mid Winter and it was a very appreciated escape from the cold. Highly recommend a visit!

  • This was nice little stop on our honeymoon. My wife and I went to check it out and were surprised at how nice it was. We enjoyed the stay and to see all the butterflies. It was a really nice and clean place. The employees were excellent.

  • Would have given it a higher rating but in the middle of winter, when I typically visit, and I am the only car in the parking lot... I find it INSULTING that they still grab you for $5 parking in the middle of now where. Niagara Falls has become EXTREMELY GREEDY. Meter parking, in the dead of winter.... $5 a half hour. Seriously, WHO ARE YOU KIDDING!!!! Classic tourist trap. (2018: Nothing has changed, my rating stays the same. Don't bother to go.)

  • Beautiful place with hundreds of butterflies, many pretty plants that support the butterflies. The most interesting part, to me, was the butterfly nursery. In the window you could see the cacoons in different stages, even can watch as a butterfly emerges. After they are dry and tended to, a worker brings it a large container of the new butterflies to let them loose. Any patrons there when they are brought can have the new butterflies place into their open hands. The butterflies get oriented and fly away on their own. A few chose to stay on the open hands for upwards of 10 minutes before they soared off. Great experience for young and old alike.

  • Never in my life have I seen so many butterflies. Located north of Niagara Falls along with the Niagara Parks School of Horticulture. The dome housing the butterflies is packed in a tropical environment and indoor waterfall to bring a bit of nature to the cold climate. Upon my visit, it contained a lot of morpho didius butterflies along with a few other species. Beautiful and blue in flight, however difficult to capture on camera. Worth visiting again during the summer when the flowers bloom outside.
