We love holding Rosie the tarantula and digging for mealworms here. There were a lot of cool exotic insects of all different sizes and we even got to try eating bugs while we were there I had the ranch covered cricket it was gross! That was just a special show for the day they always have something new to teach us. Oh and of course you can't forget hundreds of butterflies and the excellent staff . They even have an indoor play area with a little slide, we live an hour away, but it's worth the occasional trip.
Had a wonderful time with my family, who were visiting from Peru. They don't speak any English but yet they had they level of intrigue, curiosity, and excitment as i had. They price of admission is better then most and they offer military discount. Highly recommended. Oh and make sure you hold Rosie.
Awesome place! Do not let the name butterfly pavilion trick you! This place has all kinds of animals! From spiders to stingrays and starfish! Of course they also have a massive room filled with plants and hundreds of butterfly's!
This is a gorgeous place to go. It was recommended to me by some of my coworkers, and I'm so glad I had a chance to go while I was in Colorado. Its a great education center for several different types of insects, bees, spiders and of course butterflies. It's pretty cool to walk around the butterfly area. If you're pretty still one of the butterflies may land on you. Great place to go with kids.

Educational and well organized, well worth the admission fee. They also let you get hands on with some of the bugs ( with supervision ) which is really cool. Kid friendly Staffs show genuine love toward the exhibition and knowledgeable.
