The butterflies are plentiful and beautiful! They hand out vials of nectar to draw the butterflies to you and you will have many land on you. A hall of mirrors and a lizard, turtle & amphibian exhibit as well. Fun souvenirs and a really nice attraction for young and old! Very nice indoor garden spot to enjoy too!

Since we were visiting the area in the winter we decided to check out the Butterfly Palace. We first visited the Butterfly area, as they were about to have a butterfly release. The lady working there would ask the kids questions, and if they knew the answer they got to release a butterfly into the area. You are given a... More

If you like butterflies, then you must visit. They have a large garden with many butterflies that will land all over you. The kids and adults will love it and it's great for pictures. The other exhibits weren't impressive though.

This is a relaxing place to visit. You can get a 60% discount if you have a Silver Dollar City season pass, military or being a local. Your arm band will last for three days. There is a mirror maze, a bungee forest, lizards, frogs, fish, turtles and butterflies. There are more things that go. We actually got to release... More

Thank you for your review, I'm glad that you enjoyed your visit! I do want to clear things up on the pricing though, we do offer a discount to military and SDC season pass holders but it is $2.00 off each ticket. The local discount is a little more generous, it is $5.00 a ticket to anyone living in Stone... More

I expected a little nerdy amusement, which is my speed. But no lie, walking into the butterfly area caused a fair amount of wonder and delight in two grown adults. Enjoyed the rainforest critters as well. Staff were informative and friendly. Stop by for a little joy and silliness. Protip: wear bright colors and get landed on by butterflies. :)

Thank you so much for your positive review! Children are almost always in awe when they step into our butterfly aviary but getting to watch our adult guests let out a bit of child-like wonder too is always incredibly rewarding! We do hope that you visit again in the future! More

I took my 3 preschool grandsons and we had a great time. I expected only butterflies and there were other experiences as well. The kids loved it as well as my adult daughters.

The shows and exhibits were really great. Only two I could not enter because I was handicapped. One is the mirror maze and the bungee jungle. Both are self explanatory as to why a person in a chair can not go in. The butterfly habitat was so peaceful. With a nice surprise you have to go and see. I am... More

This was our first time to visit the butterfly palace. We all really loved the butterfly aviary - it is for sure the highlight. They offer a few other "attractions" while inside, but they were a bit weak in my opinion, except for the mirror maze - my kids did enjoy that one. Overall, I am glad we went and... More

Thank you for your feedback! I'm very glad that you and your kids enjoyed the Butterfly Aviary and Emerald Forest Mirror Maze but I do wish that your visit had been more than just satisfactory. We do close at 5 PM and stop selling tickets at 4:30 since the butterflies become less active later in the day. We want to... More

This is a wonderful experience for all ages young and old. The butterflies are exquisite and the staff are very helpful. If you wear brown, they will hitch a ride on your shirt while you feed them. Word of caution: it is a tropical environment, so dress for warm, humid conditions.

Thank you for your review, we are glad that you enjoyed it! It's always fun when a butterfly catches a ride while you walk around the aviary, you can really attract them with bright colors like red, pink, and orange because they will mistake you for a flower. We hope you visit again in the future! More
