Butterfly House And Marine Cove, Sioux Falls Reviews
We enjoyed getting to see jellyfish, a manta ray, and lots of other sea creatures. We even got to touch a sea cucumber, a salt-water snail, sea urchins, and the manta ray! We did not expect this, but it was awesome! The workers were knowledgeable and friendly. Then, we went to the butterfly house and watched butterflies feed on fruit and pollinate flowers. We also saw some baby quail and lots of turtles roaming around. A really fun time! We were really glad we decided to stop by this place.
Excellent! This small aquarium and butterfly house is amazing. While there are only a few water tanks, they are all well kept and clearly loved by the caretakers. The butterfly enclosure is very well cared for and wonderful. There is also 2 touch tanks and a discovery area that is well done. Really a great place to visit at any age, but great for young kids. Our group was 2 adults, but we really appreciated the knowledge and care of the staff.
Yes yes yes take your kids to the Butterfly House! there is also an aquarium in the front room for you to see all sorts of cool things that you will never see unless you go to the ocean! the little guys and ladies can wash their hands and reach in and even touch some of the ocean life. There is a friendly helpful staff there to help everybody. The Butterfly House is so cool to walk through! It is a sanctuary for butterflies too feel comfortable around people so they are all over you the whole time you're in there. We have a two and a half year old that we take their more than once a week because it's her favorite place in Sioux Falls.
This is not a large aquarium by any means, and it is also more expensive than I would have thought. But I will soon have a child of my own and I can definitely see the allure for small children and I appreciate that it is available. There are multiple viewing tanks with a variety of fish. The main attraction is he touch tank and the rays/shark tank where you can touch the animals as they swim past. I love these types of exhibits and will definitely be bringing my child here when they are old enough to come. The butterfly house is first rate, there are many butterflies and they land on you as you walk through. There are places to sit and enjoy your surroundings, plenty of picture opportunities. Also, they have button quail wandering around in the garden and they are the cutest little little birds to watch go about their lives. We spent a large amount of time in the butterfly house and will be back.
So much fun here. It’s too bad that the pricing is fairly expensive; but honestly you don’t see this type of family fun anywhere besides huge cities. The butterflies are always so plentiful, great seating for just enjoying the environment, and a great selection of sea creatures to both see and touch. You won’t regret spending the money to stop in.
