The lady that provided information about butterflies was very knowledgeable. The butterfly enclosure was very small, maybe 30' x 30' and we saw maybe 10-15 butterflies. The information session was free.

Great teaching tool for children and adults. A must if you are re-locating to SW FL and are interested in planting a garden that attracts butterflies.

Butterfly house is so much fun for children and grandchildren! The guides do a fine job of providing guidance, and explaining what everything is about!

We were there during the borrowing owl festival and the attendant was very knowledgeable about the butterflies in the house and what they ate for food. Very relaxing to walk around in and see the different plants and gorgeous butterflies.

Beautiful garden which local butterflies are viewed. Watch as they are seen in breeding in different stages. Flowers are grown for them to use. They raise plants and save their seeds to use to breed.

Hi. There is no cost--it's free. There is a donation jar. It's in a public park. Do check their website for the times when the "butterfly person" gives the tour--she was excellent. Denny
