We had a great time watching the butterflies and photographing them on the lovely flowers. It was very educational and saw many unusual looking butterlies. Children seemed to love the exhibit as well.

Love seeing the butterflies transform from caterpillars to a beautiful butterfly. Get to walk through a garden with butterflies flying around, lighting on the flowers. One stayed on a woman's back for several minutes!!

If you enjoy the beauty of butterflies you will love this conservatory. It is down the hill from a museum that includes the wagon used for island funerals, shops, restrooms and snack bars.
