The Butterfly wonderland is an attraction like no other, in Arizona. The 3d movie is very informative & lifelike. The next step of the exhibit is a tour and self-guided experience into the butterfly sanctuary. It is colorful & peaceful. Located in a misty, greenhouse....More

Such a lovely and peaceful place to visit and just be able to sit with so many different butterflies. I initially thought it would be boring but found out otherwise. Such a nice place to visit.

This was truly a breathtaking experience. There is a short 3-D film about the life cycle of the monarch butterfly, then you go into the chrysalis room. There were multiple butterflies that emerged while watching. So exciting to see a new butterfly emerge. Then into...More
