The Butterfly Palace & Rainforest Adventure brings to Branson the joy of nature’s most precious and beautifully fragile creatures!  Where else can you mingle with real butterflies?  Let them light upon your shoulder...flutter about you...all while you’re enjoying the absolutely gorgeous surroundings, a setting that feels like you’ve stepped into an honest-to-goodness rainforest!  Your visit to the Butterfly Palace includes a fascinating documentary about the Costa Rica Butterfly Farm, a visit to the Banyan Tree Bungee Adventure, passage to the Living Rainforest Science Center, a journey through the Emerald Forest Mirror Maze, and unlimited access to the Exotic Butterfly Aviary - wait, how about this...unlimited access to all of the above!

Parents and grandparents might be happy to take a leisurely stroll through all the beauty of the Butterfly Palace & Rainforest, and the kids will thoroughly enjoy this immersive attraction.  They can gear up with a real pith helmet, kid-sized binoculars, and a magnifying glass - all provided by the Butterfly Palace - and more actively examine their enchanting environment!  While taking a self-guided tour, you can watch an informative video about butterflies, a 3-D film about the butterfly’s life, and a documentary of the amazing Monarch Migration, a species we’re all trying hard to protect!

Thousands upon thousands of butterflies are imported from around the world under strict USDA control, for their protection and that of the wildlife in the US, to their new home in the Butterfly Palace & Rainforest Adventure.  But butterflies aren’t the only creatures you’ll encounter on your visit...the Living Rainforest Science Center is home to sweet and slithering salamanders, vividly-colored poison dart frogs, giant cockroaches, and even real geckos, the kind that behave like proper animals - not the fake kind that pitch insurance on television!  You’ll be able to get up-close-and-personal views of these captivating creatures while they’re kept in an environment that’s safe for them and for you!  Check out specimens at the light microscope display, or take a peek inside a frog with the virtual dissection kiosk - a much more pleasant experience than a typical science class project.  And you just have to meet Harry the blue-tongued skink!  In addition to these freakishly fascinating creatures, the Butterfly Palace is home to a collection of brilliantly colored birds.  

Other areas of the Butterfly Palace include the Emerald Forest Mirror Maze, where you’ll feel what it’s like under the thick canopy of tropical growth in the rainforest, and the Banyan Tree Adventure that houses a Magic Pond and India’s national tree - the Banyan.  You’ll be amazed at all the twisted and tangled roots of this replica tree; it looks so incredibly real, and guests can climb all over and around it!  There’s also a large gift shop filled with fun gifts and souvenirs!

"Enjoyed Enjoyed"

Rating of 5 stars  Reviewed September 28, 2017
One of the most enjoyed things that I did while in Branson. I enjoyed the butterflies lighting on my head and hand. I've always loved them but was never that close to them. We bought our tickets there. Also enjoyed the shop and bought several things to bring home.

"Nothing too exciting."

Rating of 5 stars  Reviewed August 15, 2016
We purchased our tickets at the counter and was told the fee would allow us back for 3 days. That was nice except it did not take any longer than a couple hours to do the experience. It was a quick mirror maze, a very small reptile room. You couldn't hardly pass by anyone in it. The butterfly room was the best place! We really enjoyed it.
