For those of you who are not familiar with the area, you'll find the Butterfly Atrium at Hershey Gardens located on 170 Hotel Road in Hershey Pennsylvania. If you're staying at the Hotel Hershey, it's right down the street and within a short walk. Admission price ranges from $9.00 to $12.50 per person depending on age. Children under the age of 2 are admitted free with a paying adult.
We've been to the Hershey Gardens several times before, but this time around we went to specifically see the new Butterfly Atrium (Butterfly House). We loaded up our two grandchildren into the car and took the short 20 minute drive into Hershey. You'll find free parking located in the parking lot right outside the admission gate.
After we were done strolling around the outside gardens, we headed inside to check out the Butterfly Atrium and wow...we weren't disappointed at all. You can walk around and get up close to see the butterflies, but please...DO NOT TOUCH THEM! In addition, you'll want to walk around slowly and please watch where you're walking! They fly around at their leisure and you don't want to harm them or spook them in any way.
