An interesting experience having exotic butterflies floating around and on you. A warm welcome literally when you enter into the extremely humid world of the butterfly. A great time and very good value for money. Your ticket is a multiple visit one. Recommended.

Was really excited to come to butterfly world - upon arrival the two ladies at the front desk weren’t terribly welcoming but we’re okay to deal with. Price of entry was very fair as you can re-enter throughout the day. Signs clearly state not to...More
