Past POIs - Butterfly Conservatory [Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada]

Located in Niagara Falls, Ontario is the Butterfly Conservatory which has over 2,000 butterflies covering 45 different species inside when you enter and just a short drive from Niagara Falls, so you are probably in the area anyways and if it sounds interesting, you should stop on by.


There is plenty to see and the price is a bit high at $15, but if you do plan on visiting, I would suggest that you check out the Niagara Falls pass which allows you entry to this and a few other locations as well as coupons for things that you will likely visit anyways.


There will be butterflies everywhere, flying around and even eating fruit that is placed in the conservatory itself. If you are afraid of butterflies or things landing on you, this might not be the place since it is likely going to happen.


Overall, I had a good time here, although the price may scare off some people, and it isn't very large and can be covered in about 30 minutes depending on what you intend to do inside.

Did you know that butterflies and moths have a lot in common? After visiting this place, I actually didn't realize that what I thought were moths are actually butterflies. The easiest way to tell them apart is the antennae. Butterflies are sticks with a bulb at the end whereas moths are just sticks.
