The place could use a design update.
A little mood music.
some paint, maybe some effect lighting on walls
and a patch on a leaky roof. Bathroom were the same, campish.
Butterfly exhibit was very nice as were plants.
Gift shop is a big pain...continued

It was fun to spend time in the butterfly place. It was not a whole day event, but worth the price with the goldstar discount,.Thanks
The kids loved it..

Perfect event for a rainy spring day. The butterflies were beautiful and my kids were transfixed. You certainly don't need to spend the whole day there, though. About 45 minutes is more than enough.
