Thanks for the kind words, we think the Sanctuary is a special place also and are excitedly planning a new young child discovery area for 2020. Hope you return for another visit.

I agree with Dropsoj that the owner makes this visit so special, especially if you have small children along. This is in a non descriptive building that has been added onto several times and the butterfly room is small. However the owner does a presentation with a play using the children to help them understand the importance of butterflies to the environment. Great place to visit when in season.

The butterfly room is very small here however the owner is the reason to make the visit. She is very passionate and knowledgeable about the butterflies and frogs that they have. Lots of parking space is available here.

We had a nice visit with our 3-year-Old here. Staff was very educated and kind. Presentation was great and butterfly house was cool. A nice hidden gem!

Wonderful to hear that your experience was a good one. 3 can be tricky in the flight room / sometimes wonderful, sometimes a bit unsettling but a great introduction on how to honor and appreciate natures's little wonders . Thanks for visiting and taking the time to write this review. Please visit us again next year . The public season will start on Saturday June 6th .

This place is very educational. They have a room where they go into detail on the birth of the butterfly. The room where the butterflies are kept is small but nice.All the things they have for sale is very reasonable. The admission price is very reasonable for a family. This is a must see adventure,
