The Butterfly Palace

On a brief getaway my hubby and I took in July, we ended up in Branson, Missouri. My favorite thing there was The Butterfly Palace.

My digital camera gave out while here so I had to use my hubby’s 35 mm, so not many pictures. But go to the website and there are a lot of beautiful ones:) One of the coolest features was the 3D movie you get to watch before entering the atrium full of butterflies. It was narrated by Judy Densch, one of my favorite women! If you ever find yourself near Branson, I highly recommend the Butterfly Palace for entertainment, fun and learning. Very interesting to see the butterfly “nursery” and we happened to be there when some of the butterflies were ready to be released into the atrium!

This looks really nice Leslie. In Belgium I know there is one - and for children it is really nice and learning.

I was just at the Phipps butterfly room! Not too many butterflies flying when we were there! I thought they love the heat, but maybe it was a transition between stages that day! Love that you are back blogging!xxoo Nancy

I love to see butterflies. We have a place south of Atlanta that has a huge dome set up just for the butterflies from all over the world. It is really interesting too.
Take Care!
