15 minutes leisurely walk from Aguascalientes. Very educational. Great for kids. Highly recommend. It's good to help the people of Machu Picchu pueblo/Aguascalientes.

This place is a butterfly garden and study laboratory. Even tho is small, the researchers do a really good job explaining how butterflies live and how they reproduce , also the have a frugal but well set laboratory where you can see in a microscope butterflies eggs etc. The room has some shelfs full of caterpillars and butterflies cocoons where researchers will explain to you the difference among them. Please skip the bad reviews that apparently are done by people who think Machupichu is Disneyland
Very cordial staff, which has reported in a 20-minute tour, in detail about the research and the projects. In addition, one gets butterflies in all designs presented. Highly recommended if there is some time. The entrance fee including English guide is 20 SOL.
The research they are conducting here is impressive. The short tour is educational. The lab and butterfly areas are both open to the public. Though the walk to/from downtown is dusty with frequent bus and van traffic from Machu Picchu, it is a nice little segue from downtown. Consider supporting this eco-conscious endeavor.
Cost: Local people(Peru)= S/10 Foreign = S/ 20 Its a beautiful place include a guided tour, and a place reserved only for butterflies. Schedule: 8am - 5pm
About 1km down the road to Machu Picchu from Machu Picchu Pueblo is the small butterfly station. For S/5 you can view the butterflies and song colorful birds and get a small science tour into the life of a butterfly. If you're looking for something to do in the area besides Machu Picchu this is a good hour or more spent - including the walk.
