I was a bit disappointed with it. It was inside like a makeshift tent, very small. I drove 2 and a half hours....without the Groupon, it would not have been worth the drive.

Look for the sign. Don't be deceived by the appearance of the farm. It is well worth the trip.

Bring your camera. Lots of great photo opportunities. Wear Bright clothes. They attract the butterflies and they may land on you. Prepare your children ahead to be careful and gentle. Butterflies are fragile!

IT's very small and not that impressive. I was looking for more interesting specimens. The Moth was the star of the show. If you have to drive an hour to go, don't unless you are going by on the way to someplace else. I understand the owner had a health issue, so maybe it wasn't the best day.

The Butterfly Farm is a definite experience to have. So much knowledge shared and the guides are able to talk to all age groups and interest levels to keep the trip meaningful for everyone. Beautiful butterflies and plants, too! A definite must do!

From Our Editors

Named as a Best of Rhode Island 2011 attraction by Yankee magazine, Newport Butterfly Farm cultivates a tapestry of colorful flying creatures. Celebrating its 23rd summer, the farm's enclosure houses hundreds of different butterfly species from across the globe, including white monarchs, common buckeyes, and chinese yellow swallowtails. A variety of mounted butterflies is also available for purchase to decorate a home office or serve as a warning to moths fluttering around your home office. Open until Labor Day, the farm's outdoor enclosure is also sometimes visited by larger flying critters, including wild turkeys and hawks.
