This was a treasure. It closed in June of 2012. Unfortunately for those who missed out. We would have gone more often and told friends Had we known about it before we did. It was an awesome find on my birthday last year!

It was a really nice place to visit, though a bit overpriced. I hope that there will be other people that love butterflies enough to create places to visit like this one in the future.

The kids are amazed by the number of butterflies. The numerous types of butterflies a holds the interest of even young children. It is located in Buena Vista, 1 block from the river. The drive from Albany/Corvallis or Salem/Independence is pleasant as well.
