The Butterfly Palace & Rainforest Adventure is an exhibit that features many different live animals from tropical climates. The most notable of these animals is of course the butterfly. The butterfly rooms are kept hot and humid, so that visitors can walk around inside of the butterfly's natural habitat. This allows visitors to get up close and personal with the wildlife.
The Butterfly Palace & Rainforest Adventure features many different attractions. There is a movie that details the interesting facts about the butterfly's complex life cycle and its stages of metamorphosis. There is also the adjoining Living Rainforest Science Center, which details many of the scientific bounties known to have come out of the rainforest.
There are also fun attractions for children, such as the Emerald Forest Mirror Maze and the Coconut Tree Climb. This exhibit is a fascinating way to spend an afternoon.
The species of butterflies and lizards housed here are not native to Missouri. Without the extensive climate control, they could not survive the Missouri climate. This makes it a truly spectacular exhibit, since some of these species are from the other side of the world.
