Went to the Butterfly Zoo with a friend as we purchased a Groupon discount admission. Don't let first impressions fool you! Outside is nothing to look at and at first we drove right by the place. Once inside, it is absolutely amazing. So many beautiful...More

If you've never been to a butterfly farm and have toddlers, this place is perfect - small and quiet. However, if you've ever been to a real butterfly farm, you should skip this. We had a groupon and spent about 15 minutes here. The young...More

This butterfly zoo is really tiny and probably you should visit early in the season, like May or June, when there would be more butterflies. Not too many at this time of year but they still will land on you. The employee who was there...More

Loved the butterflies!! They do not come out if it is cool and cloudy, so plan your trip for a bright and sunny day and you will be amazed! The owner had a stroke earlier in the summer, but the guides from URI are still...More

Many interesting looking catterpillars and butterlies. Nice way to spend an hour. Bring the kids- as long as they arent a toddler. You cant touch the butterflies- so i could see that being difficult for them. Worth the trip.

Without a Groupon, we would not have known the place existed. Day trip to Tiverton for a visit was worthwhile, but if we had arrived earlier than 10:55, it might not have happened. We saw the Closed sign and were turning around to leave when...More

Don't be discouraged by negative reviews. If you love butterflies, you will enjoy this venue. It is not difficult to find if you use GPS. Watch for the very big sign. It is located on the grounds of a landscaping business. When you pull into...More

The butterflies are beautiful. If there were more space that could accommodate benches it would be a nice place for older children or adults to just sit and watch, the butterflies were all very busy and most didn't land anywhere for long. The whole one-room...More
