This serene haven is a place of discovery, wonder, healing and peace. Immerse yourself in the awe-inspiring beauty that is the Butterfly House and feel like you are in a tropical destination.

I was completely surprised by this little place! The butterfly garden was amazing, and they have little birds in there too (they eat excess bugs) what a treat. We went through multiple times during our trip here and saw something new every time. I’m not sure if the butterflies or the stingrays were my favorite! The stingray touch pool was excellent. The staff truly care about the animals and they can answer any question you can think of. If you are even remotely interested in this I would recommend you put it in the GPS this minute!

My kids absolutely love going to the butterfly house. Last time we went, one of the workers I'm the butterfly room actually walked with us to point out specific butterflies and then she followed up with facts about them. It was neat! The aquarium section is a bit small but it's cool they have a hands-on section for kids to explore... And, they're expanding the aquarium area significantly in the near future. We end our visit in the reading area where there's plenty of educational children's books about animals and such.

Kids loved it-- quite small but offered everything from a full butterfly house, to tide pools touches, manta Ray pool and nice aquarium. We spent an hour there with a six and nine year old. Kids enjoyed it. We grabbed lunch and ate at the Park outside--- kids didn't want to leave the park... lots of playgrounds spread out. We'd hoped to take in outdoor classroom building but didn't quite have time.

My wife and I took our three kids for the first time since the remodel and it was amazing! The new aquarium is great and the touch pond was really neat. Everyone that worked there was really knowledgeable and informative. Would recommend this as a half day excursion to any family!

This is a cute place to spend an hour or two if you have a but if free time and are in the area. It wasn't very crowded when I was there, and for about $10 I can't complain about the experience. The butterfly house, like most butterfly houses, has a magical quality to it. There are ample benches inside so you can really take your time experiencing the Habitat. Its very warm and humid inside so leave your jacket behind for the most comfortable experience. The aquarium is small, maybe 6 built-in wall tanks and 2 touch pools. When I was there the Shark/Ray pool was closed for water treatment but they had a sign up in the lobby before I purchased a ticket to let everyone know what was available for viewing on that particular day. The staff was all very friendly and knowledgeable. Offering to answer any questions and even look up information if you happened to ask something they didn't already know the answer to. The location is also situated right bear some great outdoor recreation areas so you can make a day of it and spend some time oicnicing in the park or going for a walk on the trails.
