The butterflies are the definite attraction here. It is fabulous having them fly all around you while you walk through the interior garden. Sometimes they even land on you, especially if you are wearing bright colours and standing still. It is a tropical environment, so...More

Clearly, this attraction is trying. However, the price is in line with a top-notch spot. This is not that. There are butterflies to see and some of the tropical plants are gorgeous. Overall, the place needs maintenance. If you are on a budget, you might...More

I took my grandkids here for a visit. We enjoyed all the different butterflies. The orchid room was beautiful as well. The kids loved the tortoise Samson. There is also a turtle pond outside with many turtles

Visited Butterfly World. A place that takes your money and gives you nothing in return. Donate your money to charity!

The Butterfly area was beautiful, but the poor tortoise insanely going round and round in the gift shop was very disturbing. Also the other one in the orchid garden, trying to get out. This is about butterflies, return the tortoises, that poor Tarantula and gekho...More

We knew coming in it was not a huge place, and that the outside garden would not be in bloom anymore. We visited at the end of September. But still we really enjoyed it! There were lots of butterflies and some beeing "born" from their...More
