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!

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.

This was an excellent experience while we were at the Natural Bridge. As a matter of a fact the Natural Bridge experience as a whole was one of the most enjoyable trips locally I have taken. We enjoyed the butterfly gardens, my kids enjoyed themselves,...More
