  • Such a great place for inquisitive young children and children of all pages. took a 3 year old child there and all I did was chase after him as he ran around full of excitment chasing butterflies and ...  more »
  • incredible exhibit. butterflies everywhere. really great place to take young kids. have your camera ready, as butterflies sometimes land where you least expect (like on a child's head).  more »
  • Perfect for kids and scene kids Ma, play with the kids. So put in adult $ 4 If you are members of the Museum on Saturdays and Sundays is free and easy-to-go. Thanks to the vending machine near the exit, eg. selling candy for insects.

  • I found this exhibit exceptionally fascinating! The butterflies were beautiful and I was amazed at all of the different species I saw and all of the different colors of their wings. It was so neat to be able to walk through an exhibit with all of the butterflies flying around and to be able to interact with them.
  • The Butterfly Exhibit is amazing for young and old alike. The residents are welcoming and will often grace you with their presence if you wear bright colors or generally smell flowery. It gets very humid so dress lightly, and wear nonslip shoes as the stairs can get wet sometimes. It's very much worth the trip to HMNS just to see this place.
  • Check this place out in winter, when it is cool outside and you want to warm up. You will feel like you are in a tropical paradise. Beautiful butterflies flutter all around you and there is a huge iguana lounging about.
  • Great experience. Lots of great exhibits! young and old will truly appreciate this place.
  • Great place for the family. Full of fun facts and beautiful butterflies. Wear something colorful if you want the butterflies to land on you. Please DO NOT throw coin into the ponds with fish. Very warm and humid inside the dome with butterflies.

Where to stay in Houston

If you come to Houston to splurge while on holiday, book a luxurious room at a downtown hotel. This area is an ideal base for getting to know Houston, offering you a chance to stay within walking distance of one of the country's largest theater districts. Houston bills itself as the "Energy Capital of the World," so it's no surprise that it houses many "green" hotels, their garages designed to cater to electric vehicle owners. For something completely different, enjoy a Texas country experience at a working ranch outside the city limits.
