There should be a star between very good and world class.
I'd call it "Cant Get Enough!" I could sit here for hrs and still not adequetly express what I feel when ever I'm amoungst the butterflies and my neice Kanana that I hardly ever see!

Im just very pasionate about certain things and this place is one of them. I have memories there!
I have a neice who lives in virginia and she comes up here maybe every 3 yrs or so.
Everytime she does she's yelling that she wants to go to the butterfly place and this time I thought she was too old for that at 8 yrs old. I mean she started going there at probably 2 1/2 or 3 yrs or so. I think this would be her 3rd or 4th time.
This time I thought we were going to have to say No to her as we, like everyone I know are having rough times and there is another little girl also a relative (11 yrs) that wants to go for the first time.

I love the Butterfly Place so much that I wish I could get married there but when checking into that which they do offer,
the sticker price was much more than I could ever afford.
It can get very hot in there at times and If you dont see many butterflies thay usually offer you another ticket for another time!

Oh I forgot! WE are going there even though it would cost like $38.00 which we can not afford right now.......but HEY!
we found 1/2 off a $30.00 gift card on
www.whofish.com
soooooooo
COOL!!!!!
We are going either friday, saturday or sunday this week!!

The Butterfly Place is an indoor atrium which is designed to house some of natures most colorful living beings: butterflies! Within this atriums living environment can be found a variety of colorful plants, shrubs, bushes each of which has been selected as a source of nectar (food) for the butterflies. There is also a goldfish pond inthe middle to give the scene a natural look.

I went with my mother as part of a girls' day out. She had worn some bright colors (bright green hat and hot pink slacks) that day. Apparently butterflies love bright colors. I had such fun watching as butterflies kept landing on her left and right!

The place is small but definitely worth a couple of hours of your time!

PROS: Very different place!
CONS: none

The butterfly place was very nice. My daughter enjoyed the shop at the end more than anything. It was quite small, but did have a ton of butterfly's, though there was not much of a selection. There where only about 4-5 different types. A nice place to go, to get out of the house, something different. We will go again :)

This is a place my daughter asks to go to over and over again. Each time, we see and learn new things. There is plenty of staff there to answer any and all questions we have and you can spend as much time as you want in there. We have gotten so many beautiful pictures of butterflies that we have never seen or heard of before. They really take good care of this place and the lovely creatures within. Great educational experience.

This is an out of the way, unexpected place to visit. It is a large atrium that houses butterflies in various stages of development. You can walk through and see many different varieties close up.
It's kept very warm inside so bear that in mind. There are guides insdie the atrium to answer any questions you or your children might have. It is handicapped accessible as well. You can take as much time as you want looking around and I would recommend a camera!
There is also a cute gift shop with, of course, butterly inspired gifts and souveniers and a picnic area outside to eat.
You can use your WGBH memebership for a discounted admission.

Message from The Butterfly Place

See New England butterflies and tropical species from all over the world. Walk along a winding pathway. Observe butterflies sipping from flowers, basking in the sunshine and flying freely in a natural habitat. Enjoy our koi fish and quail birds which live among the butterflies. Visit the “show and tell bench” where a staff member is always available to answer your questions and help make your visit fun. See eggs, caterpillars or other interesting creatures up close.



Watch a 15 minute, continuously running video which explains the butterfly life cycle and shares fun facts. Explore exhibits where you may observe eggs, caterpillars, cocoons and chrysalides. Each display gives information about the species featured.



Take home a Butterfly Hatching Kit so that you can hatch and release your own live butterfly or moth. We make it easy and fun! We also offer gift certificates and a wide range of unique butterfly-themed gifts, jewelry, books, inexpensive souvenirs, and educational materials. Many of our most popular items are also available online.



Parking at The Butterfly Place is free and plentiful. All areas are handicapped accessible, and strollers are welcomed and encouraged. The butterfly flight area is kept at 80-85 degrees as butterflies need warmth to fly. Dress appropriately. There is air conditioning in all other areas. Most visitors spend about one hour to enjoy their visit. Your admission is valid for the entire day, so you may “come and go” as you please. There is no place to eat inside. The Butterfly Place does offer an outdoor picnic area, where there is a covered tent available from April through the end of the season (see schedule). In addition, there are nearby places to go for coffee, lunch or ice cream. Don’t forget your camera!
