Beautiful setting and ample amount of butterflies. But to be honest, not worth the price. If given a choice the other butterfly house is better.

When we switched carriages at the switching station, the driver said we should all go see the butterfly conservatory. We walked down the sloping walkway to the building. Upon our arrival, was $7/per person! Um, no thanks.

The Butterfly conservatory was small, yet there were many varieties of butterflies. It is pricey compared to what you may see, but well presented.

My boyfriend surprised me with tickets to this exhibit last year and we had a wonderful time. Another reason this man is now my husband...he thought I'd enjoy it and I sure did.

On our tour of the Island took advantage of the Butterfly Conservatory and were not disappointed. A bit expensive for the small space, but very nicely kept.

It was neat to see these pretty butterflies. The deep blue ones were the prettiest ones. The butterflies were in what looked like a greenhouse. They sometimes would land on you. It seemed that they like old bananas. There was a worker here that would...More
