An educational but fun experience! We loved the loose butterflies. Definitely bring a camera. There will be many butterflies ready to pose for that perfect picture.

This was a cute little place and a nice way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Although the building and technology is outdated, the displays themselves are great. We had fun looking at all of the caterpillars and cocoons, and we spent a lot of time hanging out in the butterfly area taking photos. Good deal!

It was so cool how they landed on you! My six year old loved it!

What You'll Get

Butterflies exude an air of elegance, due to their iridescent wings and refusal to walk anywhere. Admire in-flight class with today's Groupon: for $12, you get admission for two people to The Butterfly Place in Westford (up to a $24 value). The Butterfly Place is seasonal and open until Oct. 31. Please check website for hours.

Teeming with colorful flora and fauna, The Butterfly Place's expansive indoor garden houses koi ponds, quail, and a panoply of flowers, all enlivened by the prismatic array of meandering butterflies. Hundreds of local butterflies aerially frolic and discuss politics with their tropical brethren from around the world under the garden's translucent roof. Keen naturalists can jot sightings of luna moths, giant swallowtails, and banded oranges in their field notebooks, and the less entomologically informed can rely on the knowledgeable staff to fill them in on the scientific facts of colorful flutterers.

Visitors can also watch a 15-minute video on the life cycle of butterflies or bask in the unseasonable warmth of the butterfly room, which is kept at a balmy 80 degrees.

The Butterfly Place's admission prices vary. Today's Groupon offers a greater discount for adults than for seniors or children.

About The Butterfly Place

As visitors step into the balmy gardens of The Butterfly Place, they may feel as though they are “walking into a floating garden . . . as if they are being carried as well.” That was the experience of a Wicked Local writer who visited the seasonal indoor sanctuary, which houses both local butterflies and tropical species culled from around the world. As the butterflies freely wing about the sanctuary, koi fish swim through serene ponds along the winding pathway, and quail waddle and moonwalk through myriad species of colorful flora. Those who find that watching the butterflies sip nectar incites their own hunger can take a break at the outdoor picnic area and nibble on any snacks they may have brought along.
