Closed and moved to another state. We saw this display 5 years ago and was nice but not sufficient area for the butterflies. Maybe they will bring back with a more appropriate display.

This was an awesome way to get up close & personal, and feel as one among the vast majority of butterfly's available for viewing. Word of advice, keep your eyes open & tread lightly!

I love butterflied. But this was one room, very muggy and the thing about it was that a lot of the butterflies were dying or dead in there. They flew right on you which was cool but you had to shake or pick them off...More

Beware, it is extremely humid in this place. The facility is very small and butterflies are everywhere feeding on laid out fruit. Was not impressed by the selection of butterflies as well.

High expectations quickly dashed when we found out the butterfly room, and that is all it was - a room, was in the basement. Painted concrete walls with artificial lightening. VERY few species, VERY few butterflies at all. The ones they had were lethargic or...More

Not worth the admission. This may be a seasonal exhibit? The room is very small and contained less than a dozen butterflies. Not recommended for small children as you have to be very careful where you walk or you will step on the butterflies.

The Butterfly Exhibit at the Natural Bridge is small and humid, but interesting if you have never had the opportunity to see butterflies in their natural habitat. Several butterflies were flying around and one even landed on my shoe! Watch were you walk! There is...More
