    Suck it up and hold Rosie the tarantula. She's actually really soft and light.

    The Butterfly Pavilion was the nation's first stand-alone non-profit insect zoo. In its exhibits visitors see and interact with live invertebrates from around the globe.

    Definitely a family attraction; the bright greenhouse is filled with many enormous and colourful butterflies. Impressive for all ages.

  • Adam S. on 09/27/11

    Try to go during the early morning - butterflies are much more active.
