"The Butterfly Palace and Rainforest Adventure"
June, 2018
My 7 year old daughter loves this place! We have taken her to Branson twice so far and she had to go to the Butterfly palace both times! It is so neat! They even have a mirror maze that's all included in your ticket price (so don't waste your money going to Hannah's Maze of Mirrors----the mirror maze at the Butterfly Palace is way better!).

"Lots of fun!"
May, 2018
The Butterfly Palace exceeded my expectations. Our wrist bands were good for three days, but I didn't anticipate going more than once for a couple hours. We ended up going another day as well. All three kids, ages 6, 11, and 14, enjoyed the experience. I recommend participating in their critter chats and butterfly releasing. Both are worth it. We went through the mirror maze dozens of times; the kids really enjoyed it. The butterflies will land on you and your feeding flower. It was a good experience, and if we are in the area again, I know the kids will request another visit!

Tip: You can't touch the butterflies, but they can touch you. Be sure to keep your wristbands on in case you want to come back another day--you probably will!

"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.

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.

Tip: Be aware the area where the butterflies are is not air conditioned. It is very hot and humid inside.

"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

My husband didn't want to go, but loved it once inside the butterfly garden. We walked around with nectar and the butterflies seemed to like him! We sat, listened to the music and watched a variety of beautiful butterflies. Admission is good for 3 days, so we will go again during our stay.

We got a 2-day pass so we could go back, it was so enjoyable! The rain forest was full of fabulous butterflies of every species. Two different movies told the history and life cycles of the Monarch bufferfly. Wonderful gift shop.

The price tag seems a little steep — $50+ for two adults and an almost-teen — until you consider that it’s for a three-day pass. The mirror maze and banyan adventure are both great, and we loved having up close encounters with the butterflies. (Also appreciated: the staff not forcing our autistic daughter to wear the wristband.)

This was the most amazing place! Butterflies of every shape, size and color you can imagaine! My husband and I took one of our granddaughters and she loved it! Well, except when one tried landing on her! She got over it, though. It was well worth the money.
