The Butterfly Palace in Branson is a decent place to view butterflies and learn more about them. It contains a mid-sized butterfly garden for viewing live specimens. Other than that, there is a mirror maze, theater, and small room with reptiles. We were slightly underwhelmed by the variety. However, for a one hour visit, it was very interesting. Also, the...

We went here on a rainy afternoon and really enjoyed the visit. The mirror maze was creepy, but the butterflies were awesome! Lots of fun walking thru the "rainforest" and having them all around and landing on you! Nice little presentation for the kids (and adults) too!

So many beautiful fliers. I wore bright colors without knowing I would visit the Palace and it was a perfect outfit. The butterflies were so attracted to my clothing I finally sat down and let them play all over me. Great gift shop too

Very cool to interact with the butterflies. The mirror maze was fun. The price to get in is a bit much per person, especially if you only plan to visit once on your trip.

We took our family to visit the palace last month. My 9 year old loved every moment and activity. My 4 year old loved the bungee room upstairs. We all enjoyed the mirror maze and amphibian area downstairs. The palace offers the kids a silk flower that has some sort of nector that attracts the butterflys. This made it very... More

A lot of beautiful butterflies that you can not see anywhere in USA. My family absolutely loves the Butterfly Palace. Every time we are in Branson we have to visit. My girls (11 and 9) love everything about butterflies. Over the Easter weekend we visited 3 times and all 3 times girls got to release butterflies. It is a MUST... More

It was a rainy Sunday so we decided to go to the Butterfly Palace. Admission was reasonable for the number of activities and the amount of time spent. They have several educational movies that last 15-20 minutes each. The butterfly area is great. Tip: wear bright colors for more butterfly interactions. I was wearing a peach shirt and was soon...

This was a fun place! At first we thought it was a little expensive, but they give you an arm band and you can come back as many times as you want during a 3 day period. It had a fun mirror maze, reptile room, a bungee cord jungle and of course the butterfly paradise. Lots of beautiful butterflies!

This is a very nice place to visit. Young and older people can enjoy this, as well as the people in between. At Christmas time, they had a live angel statue. She was beautiful, you had to stare at her a long time to see if she was real.
