We took the kids, my sister, and their grandmother to see the butterflies. There was an educational exhibit outside of the entrance to the dome where the butterflies live. We learned all about the different species and how the eye perceives the color of the butterflies. When we went in, they were everywhere and would rest on our arm or... More

While exploring the St Louis area I found Sachs Butterfly House! What a gem of a find. As a photographer I could spend many more hours here and still be content.

I didn't appreciate our butterfly house until I was traveling and visited another butterfly house. I had to snoop around to see a single butterfly. But not at Sachs Butterfly House! It's actually a bit overwhelming to enter the bio-dome structure and have butterflies on every surface and flying around you. It can get busy on weekends, but my husband... More

I have been to temporary butterfly houses before and was not impressed. This was great! They are everywhere! If you can be still they will land on you. Quite warm though

I love going to the Butterfly House with my grandkids, but I would go by myself, too, if they would let me. I could spends hours sitting in the lovely, warm butterfly room. It is so peaceful and relaxing and beautiful.
