I wasn't sure what to think, but I spent the entire time with a big smile on my face. Lots of butterflies, along with flamingos and birds. Would have liked more staff inside fir information.

Great fun. We went as couples, but would be great for kids. Walk through humid room with a great many butterflies around & landing on you. Good explainations on signs before & during the walk through.

A large array of colorful butterflies as well as plants and birds from around the world. Very peaceful short stroll in a humid green house. There is a large gift shop with jewelry, Christmas ornaments, clothing, etc. $12 entry fee.

I can't see why not. It is a completely indoor sanctuary.
