The Butterfly Conservatory in Niagara Falls is an indoor attraction that allows visitors to wander amongst recreated tropical conditions in which more than 2,000 butterflies fly freely. The conservatory also has educational displays and film. This attraction is especially good for families with kids under 14. Children are in awe of so many colourful butterflies, some of which will land on you - and the conservatory's location within the Niagara Parks Botanical Gardens offers up plenty of green space for kids to run around.
