This place is wonderful. My wife effectively dragged me in here and we wound up staying for over an hour. The staff was helpful and informative. This is not normally my kind of thing but I did like this.

A beautiful collection of butterflies. We were only able to stay for about 15 minutes due to the warmth, but it was worth it! I could have stayed all afternoon.

It's beautiful to see all of the butterflies! Just a short walk from all of the shops and not as busy as a lot of the other places are!
