This Massive Tropical Conservatory In Western Massachusetts Is A Big Hit
I had a friend tell me that he had taken his daughter to this massive butterfly place in South Deerfield, MA recently. I had never heard of it, but since I have two young children, I'm always looking for a new, interesting place to take them.
Boasting of an 18,400 square foot facility, "Magic Wings" opened in 2000, expanded in 2004, and creates a certain tropical vibe where some 3000 butterflies and more can freely fly inside, according to their website, magicwings.com.
Magic Wings is a huge facility. An 8000 square-foot tropical conservatory with nearly 4000 free-flying tropical and native butterflies from all over the world! We also have exotic reptiles, frogs, fish, birds & insects to see up close and personal. - Magic Wings Facebook

They have tanks in the beginning with frogs, lizards, and more insects. The butterfly room is so magical. It's like being in a fairytale, they have all different types of butterfly breeds, big, small, the big blue ones fly together, it's so cute.
The have tortoises, birds, and other additional tank species in the main butterfly room, also. Background music totally fits the mood, as well! It feels like an avatar movie. -Anonymous
