"Fun activity for all ages"
August, 2017
We took our 3 year old son to see the butterflies at the palace. You are given containers of sweet butterfly food which attracts the beautiful creatures. My son thought that was so fun until one landed on his shirt. He was not so sure what to do when that happened. :)

The Rainforest Science Center was educational. He enjoys seeing and learning about different living things.

"Awesome!"
June, 2016
This was a special place in which we took our granddaughters. They had fun doing the bamboo maze. Then we went into the butterfly area. At first they were scared of the butterflies landing on them on the nectar, but as time progressed they warmed up. It was beautiful and even us adults had a blast. Such beautiful butterflies with exquisite colors. Would highly recommend. There is no time limit as to how long you stay with the butterflies. We also stayed and participated in the release of new butterflies.

"Butterfly Palace - Wings of Wonderful!"
June, 2016
The Butterfly Palace was a perfect place to take our 7-year-old granddaughter. We all enjoyed the amazing beautifully colored butterflies fluttering about, landing to sip nectar, the birds singing in the tree branches overhead and gorgeous orchids.
Plus the online reservation and voucher process went perfectly?! Better than Expedia

"Family Favorite"
July, 2015
This is one of my daughter's favorite places in Branson. If you enjoy photography, prepare to spend some time in the live butterfly portion of the palace. The Butterfly Palace is also beautiful during the Christmas season and includes "living" angel statues, poinsettia trees, and all-white butterflies.

Tip: Call ahead to see when they will be releasing butterflies. They allow visitors to help release butterflies for their "maiden" flights.

My sister & I visited Te Butterfly Palace while in Branson, we love butterflies & it was a pretty neat experience. They do offer a Senior Discount. It’s Very Humid where the live butterflies are, kinda a Safari atmosphere, when you enter you’ll pick up a little vile that has nectar inside the vile with a flower on the end, turn it upside down and tap the flowers on the top of your hand which puts nectar on your flower and attracts the butterflies to you! Pretty Awesome! **Its a self tour so, you can spend as much time as you like in their! Also your wrist band is good for 3 DAYS as long as you keep it on you can go back when you like! Enjoy, Anita Lee Wylie, Texas

"Great for a chilly morning"

This was great for a chilly morning with the kids (toddlers). The butterfly “release” was more of a letting go of them one by one, more educational than awe inspiring.

"Not worth the price..."
TripAdvisor user rating 1 out of 5
Reviewed April 14, 2018 NEW
We have driven by this place several times and decided to finally check it out. We should have checked the prices and reviews before going because we paid $44, yes $44 for two adults!!!! The mirror maze was simple and maybe fun for kids. The “science center” was a small crowded room and we couldn’t even enjoy it. Once we walked in to the butterfly room it was indeed beautiful to see them all but we walked around the whole room in like 5 minutes. We spent $44 for like 20 minutes spent in there. You wristband let’s you in for two more days but what’s the point when you can see it all in 20 minutes? Definitely wouldn’t recommend this place...

"Great chance to interact with butterflies!"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed April 14, 2018 NEW
The highlight of the visit was interacting with the butterflies - and the entry for 3 days for one entry fee makes it even more attractive. The "tropical" animals in the terraria were pretty cool little critters. The mirror maze & the vine maze were fun for the little folks. The lack of good, solid information all the critters was a little disappointing. There were more kinds of butterflies in the room than were identified on the card (plus the birds). It would be nice to be able to find out a little more about the critters than just seeing them.
