Interesting, beautiful butterflies throughout. It was quite relaxing and although it is small, it is a fun way to spend a couple of hours with family. My teenage daughter found it very interesting as well.More

I really enjoyed this place- lots to learn and if you're lucky, a butterfly will land on you. Wear bright colours.

It was great to be in the butterfly room! I just wish it was a little bigger as it was quite busy at times. I didn't find the exhibits overly exciting but it is still worth the trip and I would likely go again.More
