Bali, an island in Indonesia, is known for its volcanic mountains, iconic rice paddies, clear lakes, lush forests, and coral reefs. The Krohn’s showroom has been transformed to a Bali inspired sancturary with flowers, plants, grasses and decor … and, of course, loads of butterflies.

  1. Oh no! That’s terrible. They shouldn’t allow children–or anyone– to handle the butterflies πŸ™

  2. I agree that the lack of supervision of children was horrible. I saw a little boy, very young mangle more than one. His parents where not watching him. It was sad. Could have been beautiful. Parents need to be accountable.

  3. Our family was there July 5th and saw none of the children misbehaving as commented upon above. It was very busy with lots of children, all using thei butterfly paper.
