Great place! Beautiful all the way through. Plenty to see, lots of educational experiences presented in many different learning styles. The price is great, but the building is small, so if you're there just to look it may be a bit short of an experience. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Can be hard to find parking on busier days. Plenty of nearby food options. Highly recommend for young and old alike.

This place is truly magical. I LOVE butterflies and actually do my own butterfly art. If I worked or lived closer I'd come here all the time. What an amazing place. I just wish they sold their dead butterflies to locals to make art.

We went on the last day they offered the $5 admission so it was a little packed, but we still had a lot of fun! It was my families first time going, and it was beautiful! My son, husband and myself held Rosie the tarantula. It was pretty terrifying but a cool experience. Will definitely be going again next time we visit Colorado

Went here on a road trip just for a quick stop. Not as large as I hoped, but I saw plenty of butterfly's and insects that I've never seen before. As long as it's not too busy I imagine this is a really good place to visit. Had fun, employees were very kind, and fantastic place for kids(Just don't let them touch the butterflies).

I love the Pavilion. Took a friend who'd never been and he loved it! We ended up staying 3 hours so he could hang out with the butterflies for as long as possible. :-) They do have an aquarium section and a creepy/crawly section where Rosie hangs out (rose hair tarantula that you can hold). It's fun! Check it out if you're looking for something to do!
