"Great Butterfly Garden!"

We have come here with my daughter several times and I always love it. The botanical garden itself is beautiful, if small, but the butterfly garden is amazing! It is an encloses space, where you are surrounded by butterflies. Huge ones, tiny ones - all over. We go every time we are in town and it's great.

Note: the "café" at this place is kind of lacking - take your own lunch or find another place to eat.

"Beatuful and Fun Activity"

The Tucson Botanical Gardens is great for adults and kids probably 3 and over.  They have an awesome butterfly exhibit and some fun activities for kiddos like a butterfly picture stand, carosel horse, and others.  You could spend an hour here or four as there's lots to see.  it's also in the middle of Tucson, so there are plenty of food options close by.

My kids find this botanical gardens a little bland.  I feel like the staff frown upon little kids, and their normal behaviors.  Beautiful landscape and information.  Kind of small, and right in the middle of a residential area.  It is fine, but if you are looking for something to do in Tucson there are plenty of other activities that you could do and enjoy for the same price.
