Enter a butterfly wonderland with 30 different species
You’re only allowed 30 minutes in the pavilion but it’s more than enough time to check out all the butterflies. They provide you a list with images of the butterflies and there are usually 3-4 employees to answer your questions and help identify each butterfly.
It’s really fun for kids, they get really excited when they spot a butterfly, and adults. It’s really like a scavenger hunt trying to spot a different type of butterfly, some camouflage to the ground while others fly around you can hardly tell what they are.
