My daughter loves going to the butterfly house multiple times each summer. It is very hot and humid inside so dress accordingly but there are so many butterflies to see in this huge indoor garden. They have fruit around that they eat and rest on, and if you are lucky like my daughter was, they may land in you! Cute gifts shop attached. if you buy tickets for the butterfly house (which is out front in a huge tent) you can bypass the line into the museum too!
