My baby boy is generally afraid of bugs. So, I brought him in here because who doesn’t think butterflies are beautiful?!? He still was scared but was able to calm and see the beauty in these wonderful butterflies

Beautiful setting and ample amount of butterflies. But to be honest, not worth the price. If given a choice the other butterfly house is better.
