Dress accordingly, because the Butterfly house is hot and humid year-round. It can be a nice change during mid winter. Opportunities to observe the life-cycle of many types of butterflies and good photo-ops. Plan to spend about an hour visiting.

Wonderful place to visit with the kids. Also the St. Louis carousel is located here so another attraction for the kids. There is a lovely park onsite also so kids can play there when finished with the wonderful butterflies

I visited as I was a member of the Mo Botanical Garden (known to native St Louisans as "Shaw's Garden:} and was able to use my membership to enter the Butterfly House. The St Louis Zoo has a lovely butterfly garden, but this one is more extensive. It's a beautiful sight. My little granddaughter loves it so much that it... More

I absolutely loved the butterfly house. It's one of those places you just have to see. There are butterflies flying everywhere - fluttering about overhead, around your feet, in the trees, on flowers, etc. Some are very active - like they're playing tag. Others are more mellow, just hanging out on a leaf or a flower. Be aware it's very... More

We visited at the end of March 2017 and final days of their "Morpho Mardi Gras" Blue Morpho Event. There were so many different butterflies and a nice climate controlled Butterfly House to walk through, or sit on a bench and enjoy. There is a short film in the visitor center that was informative.

This was a lovely place to visit. It was very peaceful walking through there. Just FYI, they keep it in the 80s. Nearby was St Louis Carousal and a little historic village. (Only standing buildings to see for the buildings_ We made it to the Butterfly House before they transferred the blue butterflies.

Love this place. I go here often to take photos of the butterflies and just relax. People of all ages enjoy the beautiful butterflies and the lovely grounds Many people do not take the time to visit the little village that has been reconstructed on the grounds. The carousel is fantastic for adults and children a real gem of years... More
