Our butterfly house is two stories (mostly shaded). You enter on the second level (we have an elevator) and walk down a ramp toward the bottom. There are stone benches throughout the butterfly house. It is warm and humid -- about 85 degrees in there. To enter and exit, you go through a double door system with an air curtain. In the air conditioned lobby, we also have benches. We have restrooms down the hall in the lobby, and two out in the back of the gardens (camp/park style). Our gardens have benches along our Grand Allee area, but we are on 7.5 acres. **If you think it would make the trip easier for your husband, let us know at the front desk that he can't enter the second level. They can let you in through our Insect Lab entrance on the ground floor of the butterfly house. Then, he won't have to walk down the ramp. We also have a wheelchair on hand (at the front desk) if it would make his garden visit more enjoyable. Finally: getting here -- there is a bit of a walk from the parking lot to our front door. You can actually drive up to our door and drop off guests, and then park, but it might require a staff member coming out and letting a gate open. If you know when you'll be out here, I can get someone to help you out. Feel free to contact me directly if you have questions -- firstname.lastname@example.org or 214-428-7476 x230. Thanks!
