The butterfly exhibit is AWESOME. you will see dozens of butterflies no matter what day or time you go. Wonderful experience. It is very very humid inside. Dress cool!
The butterfly garden was by far the most impressive thing to see at Fair Park. There are new butterfly's released every day and it is amazing to be able to get up close to these beautiful creatures. The staff is wonderful and will take the time to answer all questions and even point out some of their favorite butterflies. The... More
We loved the enclosed butterfly house, where the inhabitants are released daily at 12 noon, and the staff is willing to patiently answer kids' questions. Parking is free across the street, and there is an adjacent garden tended by the Master Gardeners. There was a snake display and feeding the day we were there, and kids were allowed to touch... More
this place is wonderful for young ones looking to experience butterflies up close or for those butterflies fanatics.

Not only is the butterfly house really neat and you can... More

Not much to do in Dallas during the holidays, so we decided to visit the Butterfly House. The weather was exactly as prescribed by the Texas Discovery Gardens web site: soon after the 10am opening, on a cloudy weekday. And there were some butterflies about; just not very many, and not a wide variety. The brochure lists 28 species, but... More
Can you imagine the thrill for both children and adults to have exotic, gorgeous butterflies land on your hair, chest of hand? We recently toured the butterfly house with an 8 yr old and a 6 yr old who were both enthralled with all the goings on. We all learned a lot as well. The staff was so helpful and... More
