3-starJust Okay
it is good that this is included in the admission price. I could not imagine having to pay extra for this. most of the butterflies are up against the netting frame of the building and hard to get close to in order to see the detail. the only butterflies that I could see up close were mainly julias (bright orange) and monarchs. Many other butterflies will flutter by, just be patient. the cart with the unhatched baby butterflies is wonderful.
