The Butterfly house was so fun. Seeing and feeling the magic of butterfly up close and personal was so joyful. My granddaughters and myself were fascinated and loved finding the different butterflies matching them to our chart handed out at the beginning of the visit.

Great place to go and see all types of Butterfly's. We thought Meijer Gardens in Grand Rapids was spectacular but this Conservatory will amaze you.

Kind of pricey, I don't even think we were in there for 40 minutes. Educational, kids loved it. Colorful variety of butterflies.
