We went there for tourist in your town it was busy but fun. The staff are friendly and efficient, I would even say well dressed and professional. The lobby and reception area is bright and spacious and they have some exhibits set up there to entertain the kids as you organize yourself and hang up your jackets. They have an awesome spot for that, a huge coat rack. After the reception area you head into the main area. It is really nice in there and there really is lots to see. It is one of those places that you have to take your time and look closely at to really appreciate. It has a jungle feel to it and is tropical and humid, it is like taking a quick trip down to the equator. There are parrots and flamingos as well as many different types of butterfly’s. There are also countless types of plants. The different water fountains and ponds are also quite interesting and make the atmosphere diverse. This is a most do annually for our family.
This is a fantastic afternoon excursion for the family. From the newly added bug zoo to the wonderfully warm and humid butterfly gardens, we were all entranced. I especially loved the unexpected wide variety of birds amidst the predictably excellent collection of exotic butterflies.
