Here’s What The Butterfly Palace Guests Are Saying 

This is a unique place to visit. The price is reasonable compared to others in town. A short movie describes the life and migration pattern of some North American butterflies. There’s also a small area with many reptiles and lizards for viewing. The butterfly aviary is nice with a tropical feel and thousands of butterflies. Everyone enjoyed themselves. You'll need less than two hours for this attraction, but there's no time limit. You can revisit up to two days for the one admission price.” 5-star TripAdvisor Review 

It was one of our favorite things. We stayed in the butterfly part for an hour. They have a neat movie to watch before you go in. Then you go in and get an artificial flower to hold and the butterflies fly to your hand. They’re beautiful. We took lots of photos and then looked around the gift shop. It took about two hours to enjoy this attraction.” 5-star TripAdvisor Review 

“We’ve been coming to Branson for many years, but this was the first time we visited here. It won't be our last. It was amazing, and we learned so much about butterflies. The Butterfly Palace is a great place for young and old. Be sure and check it out.” 5-star TripAdvisor Review
