The Butterfly Palace: Branson, MO
June 30, 2020 11:39pm CST
We have been in Branson, Mo for a couple of days now and today managed to get out and actually do something. Last night we agreed that The Butterfly Palace would be a place that we would all enjoy, both the kids and the adults. So that is where we headed off to. We are in Branson and I have one of the twins (Ashley), her S/O (who recently proposed) and their two children. They had planned on getting married almost two years ago and then discovered that she was expecting a baby--so that postponed the wedding plans. We also have my mother with us. The Butterfly Palace of course houses butterflies in a natural setting environment. It was a beautiful garden setting with water flowing, flowering plants, and other shrubbery that you walked through at your own pace. You could pick up a tube of nectar with a flower (artificial) on top if you wanted to offer the butterflies a feeding opportunity. They also had quite a few reptiles (more on that later), a mirror maze, a short 3D movie to watch about the live of a butterfly and a wonderful gift shop loaded with souvenirs. They have specimens mounted on the walls with all the species names on them. I looked for the red butterfly I sighted not long ago but did not see one like. That leads me to believe that must have been a moth and I couldn't find the name searching moths either so still a mystery there. We all enjoyed the visit from the youngest member of our group at almost two years of age to my elderly mother in her 80's. One of the nice things about this place was that for your admission price, you can come back and visit again within the next three days IF you keep your admission bracelet on. Have you ever been to The Butterfly Palace? It's worth the admission price if you are in the area. We all enjoyed the afternoon there. © 2020 Karen Gros, All rights reserved.

It was nice! I know the kids would love to go back but some of the adults took their bracelets off and they told us to get back in keep the bracelets on. They were very specific about that and said if they even notice tampering with it you want get back in. The only thing I didn't like was in the garden/open exhibit that you walk through there were no identification markers for the kinds of butterflies in there. I thought that was a bit odd.
